Artwork for Hospice Patients

GREAT OPPORTUNITY FOR RESIDENTS IN THE HARRISBURG, PA AREA!

Share your creative and artistic talents and brighten the day and room of a hospice patient!

Create pieces for Homeland Hospice's "Art Cart", a lending library of framed art. Volunteers make colorful, cheerful, encouraging pieces of art, it is framed (if appropriate), and hospice patients are provided the opportunity to select a piece to display in their room. Not only does the artwork brighten a room, but being able to choose a piece of artwork is one way to give patients a sense of control at a time when so much is decided for them. Art pieces would be displayed in a room for several weeks, then switched out for another piece that the patient chooses.

Art may be drawings, paintings, photographs, and more. A great opportunity for all ages and talents! For more information, contact Laurie Murry, Volunteer Coordinator for more specific information on dimensions, content, dropping off or picking up of art, and etc....

Many nursing home patients are spending a great deal of time in the rooms due to the pandemic. Some patients have beautifully decorated rooms with cards and pictures of family members, while others simply have the white unadorned walls of a facility room. Help us to brighten those boring white walls!
