Note: Currently I am working in Hospice. Many of our patients and caregivers have needs that go beyond the scope of what insurance covers and the resources we have. Additionally, people who care for our patients sometimes need assistance. If you would like to offer any of the following items to help people in their last stages of life, I have a list of needs below. Helping patients and their families who are going through very difficult times is an extremely rewarding experience. Often we don’t know what we can do or say to help – these are concrete things you can do.
We need Volunteers to sit with patients while caregivers run errands or take a small break. Volunteers can also assist with household tasks or yard maintenance.
We can use donations of:
Boost/Ensure liquid meals (all flavors)
Large twin sheet sets for hospital beds
Adult pull-ups (we provide diapers but some prefer pullups, which are not covered)
Canned or ready to eat meals, such as canned soup (low sodium or regular) – nonperishable
Bath towels that are dark in color
If you would like to help, email us and we can arrange for pickup/delivery. If you decide to volunteer, some training and background checks are required. We will handle those things and make it easy on you!

I love to write and to take beautiful or interesting pictures. I combine these hobbies to share things I’ve learned in my varied experiences. My blogs cover a number of topics related to life, faith, feelings, food, health, boundaries, grief, dreams, aggravations, and whatever else may be thought-provoking. My mission, among other things, is to try to spread a little bit of kindness and sensitivity in this world. Here are some things I hope my blogs will inspire you to do:
An Act of Kindness
Change Your Life (Career, Situation, Attitude)
Set Goals, Make Plans
Have Confidence in Yourself
Learn Your Boundaries and Use Them
Let Go of What You Cannot Control
Express Yourself – Communicate
Live a Healthy Life
Start a Nonprofit
Go Back to School
Understand People Who Aren’t Like You
Whatever Inspires You to be You!
