FPH Teammates Gather to Give Thanks, Celebrate and Recharge

Faith Presbyterian Hospice (FPH) teammates gathered for the first time since the pandemic began, to celebrate the season of gratitude at an all-staff potluck lunch on November 10. More than 75 teammates, working across all FPH departments, brought homemade Thanksgiving-themed dishes to share as they visited with each other during the hour-long lunch.

Following the feast, Forefront Living leadership thanked the team for their hard work, provided a global update and shared results of the most recent Teammate Satisfaction survey. All teammates were recognized according to the number of years of service with FPH, and the newest members of the Forefront Living family were introduced. Danette Muzic, FPH Executive Director, shared highlights of the past year and her vision for the future including an exciting program called Project Renewal, scheduled to kick off in January 2023.

About Project Renewal: Thanks to the generosity of an anonymous donor, $50,000 has been donated to benefit the FPH teammates in honor of Nurse Practitioner Nam and Nurses Koa, Sandy, Mojisola, Regina, Amber and Ariel. These funds will be used to provide ongoing restorative experiences for the teammates who give so much of themselves every day. Project Renewal will begin with several intensive restorative writing sessions designed to guide the teammates in expressing the rewarding as well as the difficult parts of their experience working in hospice. The goal of these sessions is to help the caregivers better care for themselves.

Throughout the all-staff meeting, a handful of the hundreds of Google reviews, social media posts, handwritten cards and emails received from those who FPH teammates have served this year were shared with the group. The meeting closed with a blessing from FPH Chaplain William Zinc.
