On Thursday evening, May 1, 2014, Michael J. Fox, former childhood actor turned movie star and Parkinson’s disease research advocate, will join Hoffmann Hospice for its 20th Inspiration dinner and auction as their keynote speaker. “The fact that Michael J. Fox agreed not only to visit us in Bakersfield, but more importantly that he said he would be honored to speak at our event left us with an indescribable feeling. He has hundreds of offers every year and so few that he accepts outside of his Foundation, that he would feel moved to share his story with us is a clear testimony that he may be our best fit yet as our Voice of inspiration,” says Beth Hoffmann, Co-founder and Director of Operations for Hoffmann Hospice.

Hoffmann Hospice has begun our “Fund-A-Foot” campaign to raise funds for the completion of Kern County’s first free-standing in-patient hospice home. This beautiful homelike, 18 bed hospice facility will be professionally staffed with registered nurses 24-hours per day, as well as social services, home health aides, chaplains and volunteers. All it takes to partner with us is a $250 donation to fund one square foot of this state-of-the art hospice home. Each donation will be recognized with a personalized, hand crafted plaque embedded along the exterior walkways of this beautiful new facility. Help us build this hospice home…one square foot at a time!
When facing the serious illness of a child, parents will go to any length in an effort to help their child. But even then, sometimes the miracles of modern medicine are not enough. When that time comes, there truly is no place like home. Hoffmann Hospice understands how difficult it is for parents to make the hospice decision for their child. Many parents feel as though they are somehow “giving up” by choosing hospice care, but that isn’t true at all. Hospice is merely a shifting of focus – to helping your child live as full and pain free a life as possible.
We understand that this is a difficult decision, but Hoffmann Hospice has been helping families care for their children since 1995. We are here, and ready to help your family.
