There is no replacement for the comfort and dignity of quality hospice care when a loved one is facing the end. For more than 40 years, Hospice Care of the Lowcountry has been carrying the banner of excellence in Beaufort and Jasper counties. This independent, community-based, non-profit organization has not only given countless families the compassion they need at a time they need it most, they’ve also established themselves as an integral part of our community.

Helping to establish these community ties, Senior Director, Business Development James Dismond has been an unstoppable force in his role at Hospice Care of the Lowcountry.

“I’m always humbled by the support we receive from the community,” he said. “And strengthening those ties has been incredibly rewarding.”

Through popular events like The Yacht Hop or just by representing the organization in his work throughout the community, Dismond advances the goals of Hospice Care of the Lowcountry. And by his hands-on work helping families fulfill patients’ end-of-life wishes, he proves that his passion for hospice care goes far beyond fundraising.

But perhaps what he’s most excited about is what comes next.

“We are launching a Community Home-Based Palliative Program that will serve individuals who need chronic symptom management,” he said. This program, launching soon, will offer Beaufort and Jasper Counties their first truly at-home palliative care program. And what’s more, it extends Hospice Care of the Lowcountry’s legendary care into the future.
