The Crossroads Hospice Ultimate Gift Program
Jim Stovall’s book, The Ultimate Gift, inspired us to think about hospice differently. Hospice removes the negatives—the pain, the spiritual burdens, the financial burdens, and guilt. It elevates death in many ways, but many people don’t know that. His teachings inspired us to help patients live their lives to the fullest through these unique programs: Gift of a Day and Gift of Blessings and Gratitude.
Gift of a Day
We develop unique plans of care that include Jim’s idea of inspiration through the Gift of a Day. Since its inception, we have helped hundreds of hospice patients experience the perfect day. That day is based on the question: “If you had one perfect day, what would it look like?” Our staff members, volunteers and local businesses work together to bring these amazing Gifts to life.

Gift of Gratitude
Jim Stovall’s concept of the Gift of Gratitude inspired us to create Life Journals for our patients to leave as legacies for family members and loved ones. The journals contain the history of the patients’ life, including their heritage, life experiences, treasured moments and advice.
