HOW TO HELP

HERE ARE SOME GREAT EXAMPLES OF OUR CARING COMMUNITY!

There are as many ways to help as there are people helping us to reach our goal.  Here are a few samples that might get you thinking about how you might help.

We live in such a caring and compassionate community and appreciate all your donations to help bring this valuable service to our community.

 


VOLUNTEER

We are looking for volunteers for the next phase of our development.   While we originally thought that we would be working with an established hospice that would provide most of the administrative framework, we have realized that will not happen for the present.  SO.... we are looking at developing an operating board of directors as well as a strong fundraising group, who together will steer the organization for the next two years.   Additionally, we are seeking committed individuals who are willing to work with us at our one-bed suite in Tiverton.  We need a variety of volunteers to spport our residents and their families.  Training is available and required if you are interested.    Give us a call or send an email and we'll explore the possibilities with you!
