Do you want to help the community but don't know how because of social distancing or quarantine (or you just don't want to be around people)?

What about making a card or sending a postcard or card to someone in a nursing home? These folks are on lockdown in their residences to prevent them from contracting covid19, but it also means they're being isolated and are very lonely without the support from their families and volunteers.

Hospice patients and residents at these facilities would so appreciate a note from you! Knowing that you care about them, and that they're not alone would really make their day. Your note will take their mind away from this situation where they have no control.

Please contact me if you'd like to send a card or a thousand cards and I'll give you some facility addresses where the residents are just waiting to hear from you.

Ways you can Help:

  • Send a note
  • Mail a postcard
  • Take a picture of your pet to show off
  • Make some individual, incredible art and mail it
  • Write a poem and share it
  • Create a meaningful message of hope and put it out there
  • Scrawl a favorite Bible verse

Mission Statement

Brookdale Senior Living's Mission Statement is: Enriching the lives of those we serve with compassion, respect, excellence and integrity. Our Philosophy of Hospice is: * providing sensitivity and support for people and their families in the final phases of a terminal illness * enabling patients to carry on an alert, pain free life and to manage other symptoms so that they may have dignity, comfort and quality * recognizing dying as a natural part of life Hospice affirms life, neither hastening nor postponing death. Hospice is about living life to the fullest with dignity and comfort. Volunteers are an integral part, and are a fully integrated component, of our Brookdale hospice teams. Volunteering is more about BEING than DOING - it's about listening and offering support to our patients - it's about helping them tell their story.
