RadioRotary interviews Richard Tracino, President and Chief Executive for Hudson Valley Hospice (HVH) and Hudson Valley Hospice Foundation, and Kim Warner, Director of Psychosocial Services for HVH. Hospice serves people of all ages who have terminal illnesses, although hospice focuses on the entire family, not just the dying individual, helping them deal with medical, emotional, spiritual, and family issues during the last six months of life. HVH at any given time helps from 100 to 130 patients in Dutchess and Ulster Counties, guiding them to palliative care, offering programs such as music therapy, and even continuing to aid families after the death of the patient.
