About

No Sew Fleece Blankets for Optum Palliative and Hospice Care's Terminally Ill Patients is a great event to do individually, as a family or as a team builder at work. Since most patients feel the cold more then heat, blankets all through the year are welcomed. The perferable blanket size would be the smaller throw size simply because these blankets work better with patients who use a wheelchair. Purchase some Fleece at your local nearby craft store and you are on your way. A Homemade fleece blankets many times become family heirlooms or touch stones when a caregiver's loved one has passed. Please contact Optum Hospice Volunteer Coordinator, Janet Garza if you need further instruction:(210) 247-4461.
