Bluegrass Care Navigators Celebrates 30 Years of Providing Hospice Care in Cynthiana

In November, Bluegrass Care Navigators celebrates its 30th anniversary of providing hospice care to Nicholas, Bourbon, Scott and Harrison counties.

In 1978, a group of volunteers began a hospice service in Lexington. After growing into then-named Hospice of the Bluegrass throughout the 1980s, the nonprofit expanded north and began providing care in Harrison and surrounding counties.

Bluegrass Care Navigators provides hospice care to approximately 500 families in the region each year. In addition, the organization provides free grief care services to anyone in the community who needs support after a loss.

The services provided by Bluegrass Care Navigators from the Cynthiana regional office are made possible by more than 50 local clinical and administrative team members and 40 local volunteers.

“We are humbled and proud to have served this community for three decades,” said Executive Director Amy Cox. “Many of our nurses have worked for Bluegrass Care Navigators almost as long as this regional office has been in existence, and it is an honor to provide compassionate care to our patients in their home, or with our nursing home and hospital partners.”
