The flower committee at Cedar Village continues to arrange flowers for our Hospice patients. They lovingly arrange the flowers to be delivered to our hospice patients to bring cheer to their rooms. Family members of hospice patients are given an opportunity to discuss favorite flowers of their loved ones and it is a real conversation starter.
“The residents are so happy to receive the flowers in their rooms. It really brightens up the rooms and it brings them joy as well,” said Sally Korkin, a Cedar Village team member. Please consider a donation to Ensuring the Highest Quality End of Life Care to help purchase beautiful flowers for bringing cheer to others.
Cedar Village volunteers participate in many activities to benefit the residents. One activity that is very meaningful is knitting beautiful blankets for our Cedar Village Hospice patients. Each blanket is unique and made with love and care to wrap our hospice patients in warmth and comfort. Attached to each blanket is a very lovely prayer to bring spiritual greetings at the end of life. The knitters use their creativity as they make each stitch with love and then have the privilege of presenting the blankets to the patients. Your donation will help purchase beautiful yarn that our knitters can use to create these very special blankets.
For the individuals who are a part of the Cedar Village Hospice Program, their days are enriched at the end of their lives. Thanks to a dedicated group of volunteers and their pets, smiles abound on the patients’ faces when a caring volunteer and her dog come to visit. Pet visits are an important part of the comfort and care provided to the hospice patients. Other volunteers visit with the patients and bring beautiful flowers to brighten their rooms. The volunteers share stories, and often become surrogate family members at the end of life. Your donation will help enrich our Cedar Village Hospice patients’ lives.
Cedar Village Hospice volunteers have started a new project – making lap blankets for our Hospice patients. Often, volunteers may not be comfortable with direct patient care, but knitting and crocheting is a wonderful way to make a difference behind the scenes while creating a beautiful gift for our Hospice patients. It is a win-win opportunity. The patients appreciate the warmth and comfort of the blankets at then end of their lives and the knitting volunteers are creating a gift from their hearts that they know will be appreciated. Your gift will help purchase yarn to make blankets for the patients.
Everyone loves beautiful flowers!
Recently a local vendor began donating flowers to Cedar Village for our Hospice patients. Our Volunteer Manager formed a flower committee - women who live in our Independent Living Apartments. They lovingly arrange the donated flowers to be delivered to our hospice patients to bring cheer to their rooms. “The residents are so happy to receive the flowers in their rooms. It really brightens their space and makes them feel good," said a volunteer who arranges the flowers.Please consider a donation to Ensuring the Highest Quality End of Life Care to help purchase vases and flowers for the Hospice residents to enjoy.
