Hope HealthCare Services Launches New Magazine

Helpful Information, Inspiring Stories to Highlight Local Care and Programs
(Fort Myers, Fla.) – Knowing where to turn when special healthcare services are needed is vitally important to everyone. Now more than ever, people are concerned about solutions for their healthcare needs, today and in the future.
Hope HealthCare Services has created a new magazine, Wings of Hope, offering helpful information and inspiring stories about hospice and other healthcare services to meet local needs as the population grows and changes.

“Because this kind of information is so important, we are offering complimentary subscriptions to everyone,” said Hope President and CEO Samira K. Beckwith. “It will be helpful to the families and loved ones of those who are in life’s final chapter, the frail elderly, seriously ill, and the families of children with a life-changing illness.” Beckwith said the magazine will also be a resource for those who are experiencing grief.

Wings of Hope will be published quarterly. The previous version of the Wings of Hope newsletter had been distributed to donors and supporters for more than 20 years. The premier issue of the new Wings is being released in November, National Hospice Month, a time to raise awareness of the care that Hope provides. The inaugural issue also highlights Hope programs and services for veterans, in honor of Veterans Day.

Wings of Hope magazine will be designed and produced by Times of the Islands, Inc., creators of Times of the Islands, RSW Living, Bonita Living, and Gulf & Main magazines. Publisher Friedrich N. Jaeger, a long time supporter and advocate of Hope HealthCare Services, notes, “We are delighted to partner with the local Hope organization to produce a quality and informative magazine, and are honored to help spread the word about the many worthwhile and important aspects of their services and programs.”
