|Service and Access Details|
|Description (Service)||Rose Cottage Visiting Volunteers provides support services to clients with life limiting and palliative care needs, while in their home or care facility.
Visiting Volunteers bring a personal touch to the service through companionship by providing someone to talk with, do simple tasks such as reading, writing letters, organizing family photos, or even finishing the knitting of a sweater for a person too ill to finish on their own.
Caregiver support and relief programs are also available.
Bereavement Support Groups and resources are available upon request.
Legacy is a unique way to capture one's life story. A bound legacy booklet will be provided at the completion of this project.
