Holiday Care Packages

As many of you know, I moved to Utah 3 years ago to help care for my mother who had dementia. We were able to get her on Symbii’s home and hospice care for 2 1/2. It was such a life saver. We still had to do the majority of the caring for my mom, but the support and education we received gave us the strength we needed to make her as happy and comfortable as we could.

We had so many visitors each week. Nurses, Chaplins, CNA’S, case workers, and volunteers. Our neighbors would would come and visit with us.

One sweet neighbor, Heather Schow, brought a warm fuzzy blanket to her on her birthday. It touched my heart so much! It was so comforting to me to know other people cared enough to bring her a gift. I kept that blanket on her often. The week of her passing, it was the best blanket to keep her temperature regulars. It was so special to me.

I now have it on my bed as it reminds me of not only my sweet mother, but of the kindness of others. It warms my heart.

After my mom passed, my dad and I felt like we wanted to be a part of the wonderful support systems that are out there for those in need of constant care. My dad became and Chaplin and I became a volunteer.

Due to Covid, I have not been able to see my sweet patients. They miss the support they used to receive. I know they miss us.

This is why I am putting together these Holiday Gift Baskets. As these patients see their holiday decorations, they will remember that they are loved and remembered, even if we can’t be there with them.

If you would like to donate money so we can make up more gift baskets that would be so wonderful! I can’t wait to have the nurses deliver them to these sweet people.
