A Comfort Care Bag is given to every person moving into hospice. The intention of the bags are to help new residents and their families feel supported and cared for by their community. The bags are filled with goodies including a lovely fleece shawl in each. The shawls are good for a chilly evening sitting with a loved one or as a light wrap for residents who are seeking warmth. Due to Covid we are running terribly low on shawls. If you are able to help us with these items please email [email protected]
