About

Caring Hospice of Connecticut Craft and Baking volunteers help by providing patients with handmade items that bring them comfort and joy. Crafts and baked items can be completed by an individual or group, and are done off-site (not at office location). Best of all, we provide the supplies if needed.

Caring Hospice of Connecticut has patients in communities throughout Fairfield County, who reside in private homes, nursing homes and assisted-living facilities. Individuals and groups share their crafting talents to make items such as blankets, lap robes, shawls and butterfly pillows for our patients. A pattern and instructions for a simple butterfly pillow can be provided. Bakers make birthday cakes and small goodies for patients who can still enjoy them.

Caring Hospice of Connecticut is a unique, holistic and cost effective service designed to meet the social, emotional, spiritual and physical needs of their patients and families as they face terminal illness. Your craft and baked items make a difference!
