Mooresville funeral home’s Facebook ‘likes’ benefits Hospice House project

MOORESVILLE, Ind.  – End-of-life care is an emotional and deeply personal odyssey for patients and their families, who often find themselves strapped to find the desired resources needed to comfortably complete life’s journey. They will soon have a new place to turn to for the support they need at the Franciscan St. Francis Hospice House in Indianapolis.

That project has just received another boost from Carlisle Branson Funeral Service & Crematory of Mooresville. In its quest to reach 1,000 followers on its Facebook site, the funeral home will donate $1 for every “like” it registers to the Hospice House campaign from now until Valentine’s Day.

“We appreciate Carlisle Branson’s willingness to help us with our project,” said Greg Williamson, executive director for Franciscan Alliance Foundation St. Francis Health. “The Hospice House complements the exceptional hospice and palliative care services we have provided to thousands of families in south-central Indiana for more than 20 years.”

Foundation officials last fall plans to break ground on the facility later this spring. It will be located on the Franciscan St. Francis Health campus, 8111 S. Emerson Ave.
