Create For Others

We are looking for creative individuals to make "sensory" or "fidget" blankets and pillows that we can use as tools to calm and connect with our patients in varying stages of Alzheimer's disease. Please join us today. Your creative talents can provide positive, meaningful activities for people that are "lost" to everyday things that each of us currently take for granted. Each of these people were active, loving, engaged fathers, mothers...with careers, hobbies...until Alzheimer's took over their lives.

A sturdy square lap blanket with zippers, buttons, fabrics with different textures is a gift - something to do! - for one of our patients. Sturdy toys, stuffed animals....use your own creative ideas.

You make and bring the gifts to our Scottsdale office. We present them to our patients and let you know just how treasured they are.

Make a commitment today to craft and sew, craft "for a purpose."

Mission Statement

Haven Hospice is committed to providing quality care for patients faced with a life-limiting illness. The goal is to improve the quality of a person's life through pain and symptom control, emotional and spiritual support. We believe that the patient and family are intergral decision making members of the hospice team in planning and receiving care. Hospice offers an alternative to repeat hospitalizations. Hospice affirms life. It neither hastens nor postpones death, but assists the patient and family in living with a life-limiting illness. Hospice regards dying as a normal process at life's end in which we can provide dignity and comfort for the patient and loved ones.

Description

Haven Hospice reaches it's goal of supporting the patient and their families through several various disciplines. Our doctors, nurses, CNA's, social workers, chaplains, volunteers and community educators make up our caring team of individuals who know how important hospice is to not only the patient, but to the entire family.
