Uplifting Lives. Uplifting Each Other. Uplifting Our Community.
Our New Name Reflects Our Legacy of Care and the Depth of Our Mission
For more than 40 years, Hospice of St. Francis has served Brevard County as a compassionate provider of hospice services. Over time, our organization has developed expertise and services across all stages of end of life care, from pre-hospice to post-hospice. The legacy of care established by founder Emilie Sasko and a group of volunteers in 1977, has grown to become a multi-faceted provider of care and resources for the residents of Florida’s Space Coast.
Our organization’s scope of services has progressed to include a non-hospice palliative care program for individuals coping with serious illness, and a robust grief support program including extensive program offerings for both adults and children. As a service to our beloved community, our organization also provides large-scale community memorial services, a pet placement program for hospice patients, and specialized programming in support of our large population of veterans. In honor of our legacy, and to inspire our future, we have carefully chosen the name St. Francis Reflections Lifestage Care as a reflection of our broad scope of compassionate care, service and commitment to our community.
As they uplifted the lives of so many in so many different stages of life, St. Francis’ leadership came to realize that the name, Hospice of St. Francis, was not fully reflective of the broad scope of services offered.
When the St. Francis leadership explored new names, they found that Hospice of St. Francis had earned a great reputation in the community, and was highly regarded for its compassionate approach. From focus groups to online surveys, their staff and their community told them that St. Francis was a brand that resonated with their mission: Uplifting Lives. Uplifting Each Other. Uplifting Our Community.
Thus, the new, carefully chosen St. Francis Reflections Lifestage Care is a name that reflects the organization’s legacy of care and compassion along with its present day depth of services. The new color scheme is evocative of the natural elements in its beautiful coastal environment.
