Extend Family Love

About

Studies have demonstrated that families volunteering together create additional respect and appreciation for each other. Parents become role models: teaching children to care for others.

We are looking to engage an entire family (parents, children, grandparents) in the life of a hospice patient. Your family can "adopt a patient for life." You can be creative, working together as a team to create cards to mail, activity lap blankets, companionship visits (adult only, after orientation), games, phone calls, etc.

Please consider being a family that expands itself, becoming an important "gift" to someone toward the end of life.
