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 pieces to display in their room. Not only does the artwork brighten a room, but being able to choose a pieces 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 other pieces that the patient chooses.
Art may be drawings, paintings, photographs, wood burnings, and more. A great opportunity for all ages and talents! If interested, contact Laurie Murry, Volunteer Coordinator, and specific information on dimensions, content, sending/dropping off or picking up of art, and etc. will be provided.
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!
