Honoring Exceptional Caregivers at the VNA & Hospice

Gift of Caring

A meaningful way to say Thank You

“There’s no place like home.” Visiting nurse talks with female client in wheelchair in her home, Cooley Dickinson Medical Group VNA & Hospice, Northampton, MA 01060.

It’s not just a saying, it’s a fact when it comes to your health.  You are likely to do better recovering from an illness or injury in your home than in a hospital.  Likewise, people at the end of life are more comfortable surrounded by familiar faces at home.  We are pleased to help you manage whatever challenge you are facing, in the place you call home.

You accomplished a goal you’ve been striving to achieve thanks to an occupational or speech therapist, or you appreciated the nurse’s attentiveness and kindness.  You felt some relief when a hospice volunteer was there when your family needed them, or your loved one passed peacefully while a harpist was playing.  When you or your family are searching for a way to say thank you for the exceptional, compassionate care you received from a nurse, social worker, therapist, home health aide, counselor, volunteer, or other caregiver, consider making a contribution in their honor.  Your gift will not only let your honored caregiver know how much you appreciate the care they provided but will also ensure that our services are available to all.  Honorees will be notified of your thoughtful donation and will receive special recognition.

To make your gift, download and mail in this form or make your gift online here.  You may also call the Cooley Dickinson Development Office at (413) 582-2255.
