Tree of Light

During this holiday season, Johnston Health Home Care and Hospice invites you to remember or honor a loved one by donating to the Tree of Light. The lights on this special tree burn to honor and memorialize loved ones and signify the community’s commitment to caring for the citizens of Johnston County throughout their life journey. We hope that by participating, you will find comfort and peace – while providing essential funds for Johnston Health’s hospice patients and their families.

Did you know that for every person who receives hospice care, there are at least two other Americans nearing the end of their lives who would have benefited from, but did not get, this compassionate care? Did you know that Medicare and Medicaid may not cover room and board expenses for the hospice house?

By contributing to the Johnston Health Foundation’s Hospice Fund through the Tree of Light campaign, you can make an impact on the kind of care that someone will receive at the end of his or her life.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we are unable to hold our traditional Tree of Light Ceremony this year. However, we will light the tree outside of the SECU Hospice House and display luminaries to remember the light that still shines in our hearts. You are welcome to drive by the facility on Monday, December 7 to enjoy this beautiful sight.

Though we can’t be together this year, we hope to bring a small piece of the SECU Hospice House and Tree of Light into your home by offering a special keepsake.


We’ll place a paper Tree of Life ornament – customized with the name of your loved one – on a tree inside the SECU Hospice House so that all who enter will feel the love and the warmth of the season.


In addition to the ornament displayed in the SECU Hospice House, you will also receive a special silver keepsake Tree of Life ornament for you and your family to cherish year after year.


Celebrating 10 years
