A Message From
PRESIDENT & CEO MELANIE HALL
“I wish we would have enrolled in Hospice sooner.” It’s a sentiment that we
frequently hear from patients, caregivers and families. Hospice is care for
the patient AND the family. Hospice care is most effective when it is offered
at the right time. Unfortunately, often it is offered too late and patients and
families miss the opportunity to receive maximum assistance. There can be
several reasons for this delay. Sometimes patients and families are uncertain
of the available medical options and courses of treatment. Sometimes it
is difficult for the physician to discuss the possibility that the end of life is
probable. Other reasons include patient or family misconceptions of what
hospice care involves, or a lack of communication between the patient and
family regarding end of life preferences.
Communication is the key to healthy end of life transitions. Frank and
honest discussions with one’s family and physician are the best place
to begin. Seeking additional information is the next step. Hospice of
Huntington can help. Patients and families facing a life-limiting illness are
on a journey that is scary and uncertain. Decisions, such as where and how
to care for the ill loved one, handling finances, managing pain and other
symptoms, maximizing comfort, improving quality of life, resuscitation
preferences, living will, medical power of attorney designation and more,
require conversations, which are sometimes difficult to have. Our highly
trained staff can help ease transitions and provide insight for patients and
their families during the process.
Making your wishes known is a gift to one’s family. According to a 2013
survey by the West Virginia Center for End of Life Care, 67% say they
want to die at home or in an inpatient hospice facility. However, only 37%
of West Virginia Medicare beneficiaries died with hospice care in 2012.
Enrolling in Hospice care does not make death come sooner. In fact, some
studies have shown that hospice patients live longer. This is because they
receive individualized care in the comfort of their own homes by a highlytrained team of professionals. Caregivers and families learn what they can
do to assist their loved one and have on-call support 24 hours a day,
allowing them to receive their care at home instead of going to the hospital.
to visit us online!
During the month of April, we recognized National Health Care Decision
Day by encouraging families to begin the difficult conversations, talk with
their family and physician about their advanced directives and call Hospice
of Huntington for more information. These steps will help the patient and
family to be better equipped to handle the end of life transitions. Hospice of
Huntington is the voice of experience in this journey of unexpected turns,
and we are honored to be a part of helping patients and families walk
through the necessary choices to receive Hospice care at the BEST time.

A STORY OF
Each individual who passes through the
care of Hospice of Huntington has a
unique story to tell – a winding road that
led them to this door. For Jim and Wilda
Chenoweth, it’s a story of love and service.
Jim and Wilda Chenoweth with their family
Since he was 18 years old, Jim served as a pastor, both
delivering and living the sermons he preached. After
receiving his Bachelor of Arts in history and Master of
Divinity, Jim was appointed to a Methodist church in
Durbin, West Virginia, where he met and married the love
of his life, Wilda Tenney, who was teaching in the area at
the time. The couple soon began a family, and proudly
spent their lives in service to God while helping others and
raising their five children.
When Jim was diagnosed with terminal cancer in June
2012, the couple’s concern was only for each other.
Wilda, understanding the severity of her husband’s
condition, was insistent that she did not want to live
without her beloved Jim. In consultation with their
children, they decided to move to an Assisted Living
Community together so they could continue to live
in each other’s company while Jim received the care
In 1972, Jim was appointed to serve at Highlawn United
Methodist Church in Huntington, W.Va., which granted
Wilda the opportunity to complete her Master of Arts degree
in elementary education at Marshall University. All five of
their children graduated from Marshall as well. The couple
retired in 1989 and lived happily for another 24 years.
“She began to pray daily that God would take her
first,” says Roberta Ferguson, Jim and Wilda’s
daughter. Nearly a year later, Wilda became ill. A fiveday hospital visit determined that Wilda had multiple
serious health issues, and due to the delicacy of
her age, the Chenoweth family ruled out surgical
intervention. Wilda, instead, was transferred into the
The Chenoweth Family chose to
honor Jim and Wilda by purchasing
leaves on the Bridge of Caring wall
located in the Emogene Dolin Jones
Jim and Wilda
Emogene Dolin Jones Hospice House where kindhearted
Hospice nurses provided the services that allowed Wilda
to traverse into eternal life comfortably and surrounded by
those she loved most.
“When our family gathered in her room at the Hospice
House after she had been evaluated, all were amazed at
how beautiful and comfortable she looked,” continued
Ferguson. “She spent her last days under the merciful
care of the compassionate nurses in a beautiful room with
a view of the Ohio River.”
This accommodation allowed the large family to visit and
receive friends comfortably while remaining confident in
the care she was receiving. Immediately after her passing,
her family surrounded her bed and joined hands as Jim
delivered a beautiful prayer thanking God for her life.
Jim continued his stay at the Assisted Living Community
during the next year while his health continued to
decline. In April of 2014, he became very ill and was
hospitalized. Before his release from the hospital, his
physician recommended Hospice care. Having had
such a positive experience during Wilda’s care, his
response was immediate and affirmative. Working
cooperatively with the Assisted Living Community
staff, a Hospice nurse directed his care and made
routine visits until the time came when Jim reunited
with his beloved wife.
The Chenoweth’s story is a true example of how
adversity does not have to keep us from the ones
we love most. Hospice of Huntington is there to
help support and guide families such as easing the
worries of caregivers, providing the very best care and
symptom control possible or allowing the patients and
families to choose where they receive care. Hospice
of Huntington is committed to providing excellent endof-life care for its patients and their families.

AT THE END OF LIFE
By Rev. Greg Creasy, MDiv
We all face many times when we are forced to think about
the spiritual aspects of our life. Times of change and crisis
can become defining moments for individuals. But there
is no other time in life when we are faced more with our
spiritual life and beliefs than when we are facing death.
As a chaplain, I have the opportunity to talk with patients
and their families during these times of spiritual searching
and renewal. I call these times “sacred” because I believe
they are precious and powerful times in the life of an
individual. I believe “dying well” is one goal of hospice
care. The term “dying well,” a seeming oxymoron, was
coined by Dr. Ira Byock, a palliative medicine specialist
and professor at Dartmouth Medical School. In Dr. Byock’s
work and in his book Dying Well: Peace and Possibilities
at the End of Life, “dying well” refers to the potential
for growth, reconciliation, love, and healing through the
process of dying, and is carefully differentiated from the
term good death, which is often limited in understanding
and scope to management of pain and other symptoms.1
Chaplains come to the patient with hearts and ears
wide open. We come, not with a set agenda, but with a
heart to know the patient and their family. We have the
unique opportunity to join them on this journey. Each
person approaches the dying moments in a different
way, but here are some common themes that I see in
this stage of life.
Reconciliation in Relationships
Relationships are a huge part of who we are now and
who we will always be. However, they can be difficult
and can easily become strained. I have seen over
and over the need for patients to reconcile a strained
relationship or to renew lost relationships in the final
days and weeks of life. Such reconciliation is spiritual
work and brings with it a sense of completion and
Freedom from Regret
Doing life review can be very healing for individuals.
Sometimes we look at our lives and we might regret
things that have happened or things that we have done.
I believe that giving patients and their families time to tell
stories of their life gives them a sense of accomplishment.
It can lead to a feeling of self-worth and freedom from
regret. The simple fact remains that we cannot change
yesterday, but we can make the most of today. Patients
can chose to celebrate a life well lived and not be
burdened by regret over what could have been.
Patients faced with their own mortality often are trying
to make sense of all they believe. Many times, they
are caught with feelings of “not being sure” of all they
have believed in their life. They need assurance in their
beliefs and practices; assurance that they are truth. This
gives the chaplain the opportunity to explore ones belief
system and to help introduce truths of assurance for
them spiritually. For many patients, this assurance has to
do with the afterlife. No assurance will lead to fear and a
general uneasiness in patients. But assurance will lead
to the next topic…Peace.
No one likes to feel stressed and filled with strife. Most
patients I have the opportunity to minister to ultimately
want peace in their lives. One patient I spoke with
recently was very distressed about what was going to
happen in his life. As we talked, he gained a great sense
of assurance in his beliefs and I saw him relax and saw
him falling into “peace” in the midst of some very difficult

Veterans Day Celebrations
Throughout the month of November, Hospice of Huntington conducted
several events across the region to recognize the service and sacrifice
of our nation’s veterans and those currently serving in the armed forces.
Events were held at Lincoln County High School, in conjunction with
their Veterans Day programming, the Wayne County courthouse, and
the Lawrence County, Ohio courthouse. Thank you to the Lincoln,
Wayne, and Lawrence county advisory boards for their help in planning
and executing these special events.
Pearl Harbor Remembrance Service
As part of our We Honor Veterans program, Hospice of Huntington
participated in the annual Pearl Harbor Remembrance Service at Harris
Riverfront Park on December 7th. Clergy volunteer and veteran Shirley
Ball (left), represented Hospice of Huntington by presenting a wreath to
Kory Fox (right), Marine Corps League member and “Remember Pearl
Harbor Committee” Chairman. Wreaths from agencies around the area
were placed in the Ohio River to honor those who lost their lives during
the attack on Pearl Harbor over 70 years ago.
Light-a-Life Memorial Tree Campaign
Each year, Hospice of Huntington presents the community with a
unique opportunity to remember their loved ones in a tangible way.
“Memorial trees” are positioned in six locations across four counties,
and a mail campaign is launched. For a donation of any size, a paper
candle can be placed on any of the memorial trees to remember a loved
one. Throughout the holiday season volunteers staff the memorial trees
at the Huntington Mall, collecting donations and distributing information
on Hospice services. The 2014 campaign raised nearly $21,000 toward
Hospice of Huntington’s mission of caring. Special thanks to the 60
volunteers and the many donors who made this year’s Light-a-Life
campaign a success. Pictured are Janina Michael and Sarah Denman.
“Repurposed for a Purpose” Donation
Shoppers enjoyed the great finds at the “Repurposed for a Purpose”
estate sale, held on November 22 at Nancy’s School of Dance. Nancy
Carter and Kara Spurlock worked together for months to transform
used items into something new, and chose to donate the net proceeds
from the event to Hospice of Huntington. Thank you, Nancy and Kara,
for your generosity! Pictured are Melanie Hall, Hospice of Huntington

Fairland Middle School Honors Students’ Memory
Hospice of Huntington was the grateful recipient of a donation from
Fairland Middle School on February 11. Students and faculty joined
together to raise $2,000 in memory of student Candy Haugen through
“Candy’s Army”—a group formed in her honor. Evelyn Capper,
Assistant Principal of Fairland Middle School, along with Principal
Aaron Lewis and Superintendent Roni Hayes, presented the check
to Melanie Hall, President and CEO of Hospice of Huntington. Candy
was described by her family and school staff as an intelligent, inspiring
young lady who encouraged others to make the most of every
opportunity. “Candy’s Army” continues to honor Candy’s memory by
coordinating various fundraising projects in support of organizations
across the area. A leaf will be placed on the Bridge of Caring Memorial
Wall, located at the Emogene Dolin Jones Hospice House, recognizing
the efforts of “Candy’s Army” in her memory.

Carol Haugen, Melanie Hall, Evelyn Capper, Roni Hayes, Karen Dickson
and Aaron Lewis.

Huntington by holding a Valentine’s Day raffle fundraiser in the Marshall
University Student Center on February 11th – 13th. Students were

for their Valentine. The fraternity brothers raised $465 to support the
mission of Hospice of Huntington. Thank you, Alpha Tau Omega, for
your generous support!
