Eatonton saw one of its largest shows of community support at a ribbon cutting recently when friends and family of Kimberly Farley, along with several community leaders, helped her celebrate the official opening of Peaceful Purpose Hospice in downtown Eatonton.
In serving the community, Peaceful Purpose Hospice, located at 106 A North Jefferson Ave. offers grief support, assistance and educational resources to everyone.
The team consists of a medical director, primary care physician (of patient’s choice), registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, social workers, chaplain/ bereavement coordinator, home health aides, volunteers, physical/speech/occupational therapists and a dietitian all collaborating to ensure the best care possible.
Born and raised in Eatonton, Farley is a registered nurse with eight years of hospice experience. She is the daughter of Mrs. Sharon Young, and Steve, and Mr. Chester Welch; and her grandparents are Mrs. Ruby Smith, and Glenwood, and Mr. and Mrs. Henry Farley.
Her children are her fur babies, Kizzy and Bubbles.
She is a 2001 Putnam County High School graduate and has a 2009 associate degree in nursing from Georgia Perimeter College and a 2014 Bachelor of Science in nursing and 2016 Master of Science in nursing from Grand Canyon University.
Farley said her mission is to serve.
She has already shown some of that dedication to the community when she opened her doors during the Putnam County Dairy Festival last June and she and her team provided a cool place for overheated people to rest, offered blood pressure checks and a cool bottle of water.
“Hospice/palliative care is a component of healthcare that is often misunderstood, though the benefits are extraordinary,” she said.
“Peaceful Purpose Hospice of Georgia’s goal is to serve and change the views of end of life, holistic care, and hospice.”
The organization serves several communities, including Putnam, Baldwin, Greene, Morgan, Jones, Washington, Jasper, Hancock, Newton, Rockdale and Walton counties.
