Family Hospice, Part of UPMC, has been providing expert end-of-life care to patients and families in western Pennsylvania since 1980. Care is designed to ease the pain, symptoms, and stress of life-limiting illness. We honor an individual’s goals and values and support caregivers in the desire to provide the highest possible quality of life.
We provide care to patients in private homes, skilled nursing, assisted living and personal care residences, and hospitals. Additionally, Family Hospice operates a 12-bed inpatient hospice unit for short-term, acute hospice care in the Lawrenceville neighborhood of the city of Pittsburgh.
Family Hospice physicians are board-certified experts in hospice and palliative medicine.
Additionally, Family Hospice offers non-clinical, complementary services to enhance patient care including pet-assisted visits, art, music, massage, aroma, and reiki therapies.
In 2004, Shaler Area was one of four schools to initiate a fall slow pitch softball program. At that time four teams competed against one another in hopes of growing a league into a fall competitive club sport. In 2014, the Shaler Area school board voted to promote slow pitch softball as a club sport within the district. Currently over 45 teams competed at the junior high, junior varsity and varsity levels throughout the Pittsburgh region in a league known as the Western Pennsylvania Interscholastic Softball League (WPISL).
In our inaugural club season, Shaler Area fielded four teams in the WPISL. Forty plus student/athletes were honored at our annual awards banquet.
In 2015 we took the steps necessary to grow our organization in hopes of providing additional opportunities for girls in grades 7 through 12 to represent their school. Representing Shaler Area in a team atmosphere can provide a sense of honor and help develop young leaders for our future.
