A Little TIme, A Profound Effect

At Compassus Hospice, we care for people who have been given the prognosis of 6 months or less to live. Our patients live in nursing homes, assisted living facilities and their own homes in the Revere, Medford/Malden area. It is our goal to provide the best quality of life at the end of life for our patients through a holistic, person-centered approach. If you like to sew, we could use your help. We are seeking donations of fabric headbands that have buttons on the side so facemasks can hook onto the buttons and not the wearer's ears. If you like to sew and would like to donate some of these, our nurses and aides would greatly appreciate it!

Please email Kim Iannacci at kimberly.iannacci@compassus.com or call the office at 978 777-8222 for more information.
