A launch of a new initiative...
Wauwatosa - St. Camillus Life Plan Community shares “Mission Moment” as they launch their most recent initiative, St. Camillus Serves.
Last week, St. Camillus Hospice Social Worker, Xia Xiong worked with resident, Judy, to make her wish come true of attending her long time friend’s funeral. Judy and Arlene were friends for over 60 years when Arlene passed away in January. The two met at a ski club 60 years ago and were both residing at St. Camillus Life Plan Community, only a couple of doors away from each other. When Judy shared with the St. Camillus Hospice team that she was unable to attend Arlene’s funeral to due lack of transportation and someone to escort her, Social Worker Xia Xiong started brainstorming ideas to make it happen.
Xia placed a call into the St. Camillus maintenance team and was able to schedule special van transportation for her and Judy to attend the funeral together. Xia coordinated the logistics with Judy’s care team and family to ensure a safe outing. The outing meant so much to Judy and their families.
“Going to Arlene’s funeral meant the world to me. We were good friends for over 60 years. Her funeral was perfect, filled with lots of family and friends. Thank you so much to the staff for making it happen.” - St. Camillus resident, Judy
