OTTAWA - It's that time of year again and Putnam County Hospice invites you to help make a difference in the lives of loved ones by allowing them to live each day fully and as symptom free as possible. The Putnam County Hospice 17th annual night out - Glitz & Glamour... Vegas Style, will be held Feb. 15, 2014. All proceeds from the event benefit Putnam County Hospice patients and their families.

Reimbursement from Medicare, Medicaid and private insurance companies seldom keeps up with expenses of escalating prescription costs and other increases in the cost of care from the patients. In addition to the care during end of life, the successful bereavement program after the patient's death receives no reimbursement.

If you have any questions about the event, call Roni Kaufman at the Putnam County HomeCare and Hospice office at 419-523-4449.
