American Hospice Foundation DC

The American Hospice Foundation (AHF) works to improve access to quality hospice care through public education, professional training, and advocacy on behalf of consumers. AHF supports programs that serve the needs of terminally ill and grieving individuals of all ages. AHF advances hospice concepts by: training school professionals who work with grieving students, educating employers and managers about the needs of grieving employees, creating tools to help hospices reach out to their communities, promoting improved hospice benefits in managed care organizations, and initiating research on consumer needs and preferences in end-of-life care. By forging partnerships at local and national levels, we ensure that hospice care is available to many who might otherwise be underserved.
