Hospice Patients - Sharing the joy of birds
COVID-19 has closed the doors of nursing homes to the public. Of course this is necessary at this time but nonetheless it has left our patients isolated to their rooms with little contact from family and friends, or anybody.
In an effort to reach our patients and let them know that they are not alone we are placing bird feeders outside their windows for them to enjoy. If you would like to brighten someone's day and can craft a simple house or bird feeder please give me a call!! It does not matter woodworking skill level you are, we would love any an all if you don't want to build one we are also accepting donations of store bought bird feeders, bird seed and bird houses. Any type is welcome but window-mounted via suction cups are the best for patients to see.
You'd be surprised how even the small things, like a bird feeder to watch the birds, can improve the lives of patients and the people who love them.
