Langdale Hospice House Receives Aquarium Donation

11/15/2013

VALDOSTA– Residents of Hospice of South Georgia and Langdale Hospice House can now enjoy a beautiful aquarium complete with colorful fish thanks to a generous gift from the Doug Henderson III Foundation. Hospice Volunteer, Bette Bechtel, recognized the need for the aquarium and shared the idea with Bev Henderson who donated in memory of her son Doug Henderson, III. The aquarium was placed in the Residential Care Wing lobby of Langdale Hospice House for its residents to enjoy as they stay for extended periods of time.
The Doug Henderson III Foundation began in 2004 in memory of Doug Henderson III who battled synovial sarcoma, a rare type of soft tissue cancer. The Hospice library and Pediatric Patient Room were named in memory of Doug during the initial building campaign of the Langdale Hospice House in 2007. This Foundation has supported numerous worthy endeavors as well as educational scholarships in recent years.
Since 1987, Hospice of South Georgia has been recognized as the area’s leader in comprehensive end-of-life care. It is a community based, not-for-profit provider of care, staffed with experienced professionals and supported by a dedicated core of volunteers. Hospice of South Georgia provides care to any person of any age facing a life-limiting illness, with life-expectancy of 6 months or less. Fifteen private rooms in the Langdale Hospice House provide round the clock, state of the art care for individuals in a beautiful home-like setting.
