Sharing the Journey

sharing the journey logo

Since 1980, Lower Cape Fear LifeCare has provided individualized care that offers compassion, dignity, and comfort to those experiencing life-limiting illnesses. Our founders had a deep understanding of how profoundly illness and grief can affect patients, their families, and those they love. It was this devotion that inspired the creation of Lower Cape Fear Hospice (now Lower Cape Fear LifeCare) in Wilmington, NC. Today that devotion lives on as over 400 staff members serve over 1,000 patients daily, while touching the lives of thousands of family members.

As we approach the future, we must act now to meet the needs that are so vital to maintaining compassionate care for our community. That’s why Lower Cape Fear LifeCare began Sharing the Journey that will fund $12 million in sustained and expanded programs and services.

Listed below are components of the Sharing the Journey campaign:

  • Dementia is a complex neurodegenerative condition that affects millions of people worldwide, causing cognitive decline, memory loss, and impairments in daily functioning. As our local population ages, the prevalence of dementia is expected to rise significantly, posing significant challenges to individuals, families, and our communities. To address this growing concern, the sustainability and expansion of our innovative dementia care program becomes crucial. Memory Partners aims to provide specialized care, support, education, and resources to individuals living with dementia, their families, and caregivers.

We need philanthropic partners like you who share our commitment to providing high quality LifeCare to our communities. Please reach out to the Lower Cape Fear LifeCare Foundation to discuss LifeCare Partners membership and the potential impact of your support:
