  1. Hi.... My name is Beau (short for Beauregard) and I'm almost 2 years old. I was found wandering around Los Molinos all shaggy and hungry. Penny and Jim gave me a foster home while I was neutered, given my shots and groomed. I now weight about 22 pounds and will eat anything you give me. Now I'm ready for my forever home. My hope is that a loving person will adopt me. I'm healthy, happy and friendly. I am crate trained and am quiet all night. I wake up with my tail wagging and ready for fun. At night I love to snuggle up in a lap or lie on my back next to my human. I get along very well with other dogs and children and I love to play with toys...especially if they squeek. So....please come see me Tuesday at the Market where I will be waiting to meet you. You'll know me by my ever-waging tail and friendly greeting. Or, you can call my foster mom, Penny Ripple, at 6948-8255 to beat the rush. You'll fall in love with me and can take me right home with you. Beau Boy

Meet the Board In February Boquete Health and Hospice Foundation elected a new board. David Wulf- President, Merl Will-Wallace-Vice-President, Linda Sanchez-Secretary and Laurie Collier-Treasurer. Bev Tyler is the administrator of BHHF. The board held a retreat in March to formulate the goals of the organization for 2017. The goals include plans to create more community awareness of the services provided by BHHF, expand the volunteer base, reach out with services to more people in the Panamanian and expat community and to have a health fair later in the year. 2017 Volunteer Training On February 17, 20 and 22, thirteen members of the community made the choice of taking the Boquete Health and Hospice Foundation training. The training consists of an overview of all the requirements, information and skills needed to help our community with health issues. Some of the topics include: Explanation of services, discussion of grief and death and dying Presentations about comfort care, medications used in Panama Communication skills that include how a team is put together for a case, caring for the caregiver and final directives. For almost a decade BHHF has been helping the community by providing support for patients and caregivers when there is a serious illness, an injury, after surgery, or if the patient is dying. We also provide a blood donor list and loan durable goods such as wheelchairs, hospital beds, oxygen concentrators, walkers and other medical equipment. It takes a caring heart and dedication to become a volunteer of BHHF. Be watching for the announcements for future volunteer training sessions.
