Susan Weston Care For All Campaign


The Susan Weston Care for All Campaign is an effort to raise $700,000 that will expand Agrace’s ability to provide hospice services to patients who have no means to pay for this care. The dollars raised through this initiative will fund routine home care, as well as residential care and acute-level inpatient hospice services provided at the Agrace campus in Madison.

The campaign was recently renamed to honor Susan Weston, a dear friend of and advocate for Agrace who died unexpectedly in October 2012. Susan and her husband, Carl, a retired Agrace medical director, believed strongly that excellent end-of-life care should be available to everyone in our community, including those who cannot afford this quality care.

The funds raised with this campaign will enable Agrace to provide hospice services to some of our community’s most vulnerable patients, including young adults with no insurance, seniors without caregivers, people who are homeless and those with mental illnesses. People like Beth and Andy.

The Susan Weston Care for All Campaign will enable Agrace to provide general hospice care for approximately 50 patients every year. That’s twice the number of charity-care patients we served in 2011. The funds will also make it possible to provide residential hospice care at The Ellen & Peter Johnson Residence to patients who cannot afford the room-and-board costs (which, unlike the cost of hospice care, are a private-pay cost for most patients). This expansion of Agrace’s care will move us closer to our vision of “care for all.”
