It was a big birthday party for Hospice of Redmond.  The local hospice center is 30 years old.  A special party to mark the event and say "thank-you" to the community was held today in Redmond.  Hospice of Redmond Executive Director Becky Bryant explains Hospice was started a little more than 30 years ago as a way to keep people in their homes as they lived out their final days.  "It was started actually in England, by a lady there.  She found the people she was taking care of were in a very sterile environment, and she thought that most people would rather be taken care of in their own home.  So it was started there, and then came over here.  The first Hospice was in Vale and then moved to the west coast."   Bryant says about 95% of their clients are on Medicare, and that its a benefit paid for through Medicare benefits.
