Vitas Healthcare October 2021 Mission of the Month

Our October Mission of the Month is a yarn drive for Vitas Helathcare. You can bring in or drop off your yard any time in the month of October. If you would rather send a cash donation you can do so by using our donation page and selecting Mission of the Month, mail in a check, or drop it off while a church.

 

VITAS offers several key services that support patients and their families as they provide hospice care at home. Our Telecare clinicians are available via phone 24/7/365 to answer questions and dispatch someone to the bedside, if necessary. Medical equipment and medications are delivered to the home a well, and respite care provides up to 5 days of Medicare-certified inpatient care for a hospice patient so that family members can take a break from their caregiving duties to relax, unwind, recharge, travel, recover from an illness or attend other events.

Have you received hope, comfort and love at a time in your life when you needed it most? Do you feel it’s time to give to others the blessings you have received?

There are hospice patients in your area that would benefit greatly from your companionship and encouragement. We are currently looking for knitters, crocheters and sewers for our comfort care hospice program. Volunteers would create blankets, robes, draw string bags, prayer shawls and other needed items for hospice patients. Your volunteer time would suit your schedule and your location. Donations of yarn, fleece and material are also needed and welcomed.
