I just passed my 6th anniversary with Interim. My experiences here have been exceptional from beginning to present!

We were so happy with the care that was provided to our loved one. We were unsure of making the decision to get care at first but after many patient and helpful calls with the company we moved forward and are so happy we did. We got excellent communication day in and day out regarding scheduling of our staff and coverage for the hours we needed help. Very grateful for the

Interim HealthCare provided home health care services for my father over the past year. I would strongly recommend their services to any family seeking medical and personal care for a family member.

Common Myths About Hospice:

Myth #1: Hospice care is only for those who have given up on life

Hospice care is as much about how you want to live as it is about how you want to die.

"At the end of life, the concept of hope often changes for people, and their hope shifts to other priorities like quality of life, comfort and peace," says Amy Tucci, the president and CEO of the Hospice Foundation of America. "They want to be around their loved ones and familiar possessions. And they want to have the best quality of life that they can."

Instead of focusing on curing an illness or prolonging death, the goal of care becomes to relieve symptoms and give patients the the best quality of life they can have in their remaining days.

Myth #2: Hospice care is only for terminal cancer patients

When it was first created, hospice care was primarily for cancer patients at the ends of their lives. But today, while many hospice patients do have cancer, the majority have other life-limiting diseases such as Alzheimer's disease, cardiovascular disease and dementia.

Eligibility for hospice care "requires that two physicians agree that the person's illness state gives them a prognosis of six months or less to live, [but] that does not mean that they have to die within six months," Tucci says.

If the patient lives longer than six months but doctors continue to certify that they're terminally ill, they'll receive hospice care for as long as needed, she adds.

Myth #3: Hospice is a place

Hospice is rarely an actual location that people go to. The care almost always is provided where a person lives.

"Generally hospice comes to you where your home is," says Angela Novas, a licensed nurse practitioner and chief medical officer for the Hospice Foundation of America. "So if a home is in a nursing home, that's where hospice goes. If home is in the family apartment, that's where hospice is. We go to the patients."

Hospice patients are assigned a team of providers — a physician, registered nurse, home health aid, social worker and chaplain at a minimum — who regularly check in with them. They work together to provide medical, emotional, spiritual and grief support to not only the patient but also their family, Novas says.

Myth #4: Once you are in hospice care, you have to stay

"One thing that scares people about hospice is that they feel like if they choose hospice, they're stuck," says Tucci. But people can leave hospice whenever they want, she says, and there's always the option to reapply. "So if you decided, for example, that you wanted to try a drug trial or you wanted to consider some sort of alternative treatment for your illness that hadn't been tried, you could leave hospice and do that."

In other words, hospice doesn't mean you or your family are giving up control over your care, or the ability to choose who provides it.

Myth #5: It's always the doctor's responsibility to bring up hospice

"The thing that we hear more than anything from people and their family members is that they wish they had understood hospice better and had accessed it earlier," says Tucci.

Many patients don't know that they can initiate hospice care on their own, or how to start that process. Either they are afraid to discuss hospice or they are waiting for a physician to suggest it, which doesn't always happen, says Tucci.

If a patient is receiving treatments they don't want anymore, they or a caregiver can initiate hospice by starting the conversation with their doctor or by contacting a local hospice provider directly to ask for an evaluation and determine qualification.

Every illness has different indicators for when it might be time to begin hospice, says Tucci.

Myth #6: Hospice care is only for the elderly

Although most people cared for by hospices providers in the U.S. are over the age of 65, the care is available for anyone with a life-limiting condition who meets eligibility.

"There are lots of sort of life-limiting diseases now, such as ALS, that strike typically at an early age," says Novas.

We formed a foundation years ago and the purpose of it is to give what we call intentional acts of kindness to any hospice patient in the Hampton roads area.  We are a non profit organization.  Some examples of our gifts include a helicopter ride, we took a gentleman to see his horse, we have done numerous anniversary/birthday dinners brought to the patient’s house complete with servers (us!).  Please let us know if you or someone is interested in a memory gift.  They are submitted by Hospice Social Workers.  All requests go to the board and they are vetted and approved there. 

A little more about The Lorraine Bethea Hospice Foundation...

The Lorraine Bethea Hospice Foundation is comprised of community volunteers who wholeheartedly believe in caring for the human spirit and lifting people up in times of transition. Providing hospice Memory Gifts—spirit-lifting, intentional acts of kindness to those on their end-of-life journey—is their joy and mission.


Mission Statement

The specific purpose of the Lorraine Bethea Hospice Foundation is to support hospice patients and their families through intentional acts of kindness for further comfort toward their end of life journey.

What is a Memory Gift?

A Memory Gift is an intentional act of kindness that will lift a human spirit. It varies from person to person and family to family. It may be a dinner at a restaurant, a special experience, or a visit from a special person. Each gift is determined individually. Their goal is to make it happen.

March 29th is Mom and Pop Business Owners Day.  We are proudly second generation family owned and operated.  In a healthcare world where corporations are becoming the majority ownership of most healthcare companies, we have the unique relationship of being family owned.  From intake calls to billing processes, our owners are involved in every aspect of the business.  Quality care is paramount to us.  We provide a full spectrum of service that not many others provide, meaning that if you have a care need at home, we can assist you.

David and Kelly Haslup opened Interim HealthCare in Charlottesville, Virginia in 1991 expanding later to the Shenandoah Valley and Hampton Roads.  Current owners David Haslup and Elizabeth Donaldson serve as Chief Executive Officer and Chief Operating Officer.

"Since my graduation from college in 1977 I have had a passion for self-employment.  After investigating a relative’s Interim HealthCare franchise in Indiana I realized that I could combine my passion for self-employment and become a vital member of our community by helping those in need in the comfort of their homes. I never anticipated the extent by which home care would grow since 2001, both in the delivery of care as well as the complexity.Fortunately I have been blessed with great employees and a supportive franchisor that have helped me navigate through the health care maze. I have also been blessed with caregivers that amaze me every day with their commitment and professionalism. But I have also been blessed with a very supportive wife and children who supported me when I was a new owner through today where two of our three children are now running the company and now have total ownership. I can think of nothing better than to see the legacy that my wife and I have built be carried on by our next generation."
