Monterey: Volunteer Crafters: Activity Mats needed for Alzheimer's patients

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Heartland Hospice

Image_202008191123

Heartland Hospice in Monterey county is looking for crafters to make and donate activity mats for our patients. Activity mats can provide comfort for patients with dementia and Alzheimer's disease, as they can provide relief from anxiety, stress and restlessness. Activity mats are rectangular cloth mats that can be placed in the laps of patients, they consist of different materials, textures, images and patterns. I have attached a photo as an example. Add on items are securely sewn onto the mat for safety reasons. Frequently used add on items are zippers, ties, stuffed animals, ribbons, laces, Velcro and pockets. There are awesome examples available on Pinterest and google search will bring up addition ideas. Be as creative as you want.

Please contact me with any questions or for more information: Jonis Phillips, Volunteer Coordinator

Mission Statement

We believe our mission is to enrich lives. That begins with every life we encounter: Our employees, our patients, and those who love and care for them, the communities in which we operate, our stakeholders and those who are yet to become our customers.

Description

Heartland Hospice is a 501(3)(c) organization made up of a dedicated team of Nurses, Home Health Aides, Spiritual Coordinators, Social Workers, Bereavement support, Medical Directors, office staff, and volunteers that desire to give a full circle of care to patients with advanced stage illnesses.

Volunteers are the most important component in helping the staff give a full circle of care to our clients. They can visit clients in their home or facility, give caregiver relief, make crafts and gifts items for the clients, office support, and much more...

Without volunteers our clients would lack in receiving the love and care they need during their most difficult journey.
