Comfort Care Bags
What are Comfort Care Bags?
In simplest terms the comfort care bag is made up of donated items to provide comfort to the palliative care person, their families and loved ones in this journey of their life and to let families know they are supported by their community during this difficult time.
What is in a Comfort Care Bag?
Comfort Care Bags are made up of everyday items that families can utilize when caring for a loved one in a palliative care setting. Items like a light weight shawl to keep the chill off in the evening or travel shampoos/conditioners, mouthwash, hand creams for the families traveling or puzzles, crosswords, word searches and cards to keep the mind active or teddy bears, colouring books for both adults and children, play doe, bubbles, small toys to help the children engaged are items you will find in the Comfort Care Bags.
Note: Items differ in each bag because we rely solely on donations for this project.
