Facility help includes working with Activity directors to paint nails, call Bingo and other games, art and crafts, helping serve meals, and other things as they are needed.

Remember patients are terminally ill, so we want to provide comfortable and safe activities to do, just because the are terminal does not mean they want to do nothing!
