Comfort to our patients

Do you love to knit, crochet or quilt? Would you love to use your talents to help others?

We are in need of a loving soul or 3 to crochet, quilt or knit lap blankets for our hospice patients.

The basic measurement is 30 inches square (great size for a wheelchair blanket), however, we are not picky!

We also are looking to obtain lap blankets with Patriotic colors to give to our Veteran patients and fidget blankets for our patients with dementia.

You create what you are best suited for on your schedule, and drop at our Westmont office when convenient for you. No hospice training required for this volunteer role.

Patients love to receive these warm and cozy hand made gifts, so come share your talents with us.

Description

Hospice isn't a place. It's a philosophy of care. Our mission is called enriching life.

Heartland Hospice is dedicated to providing patients with care wherever they consider home. Whether care is desired in the home a patient has lived in for years, a skilled nursing center or an assisted living facility, we tailor our caregiving to fit the patient's and family's unique needs.

Heartland's caregivers enrich our patients' lives and provide support by developing individualized care plans, setting goals, encouraging personal choices, working together in caregiving decisions and supporting meaningful experiences. Our caregivers help manage pain and symptoms, enabling patients to live life as fully and comfortably as possible. Social workers and spiritual counselors create a comforting environment in which patients and families are able to share their thoughts, hopes and concerns. And special bereavement programs provide emotional support to patients and families who need help coping.

Heartland Hospice supports the patient and family wherever they are in their health care journey, and upholds the patient's and family's wishes, goals and values. At Heartland, we help preserve our patients' dignity, show them the respect that they richly deserve and provide compassionate care through our Caring Promises.
