NEW ART PROGRAM BENEFITS HOPE HOSPICE PATIENTS
 
 
DUBLIN, CA – Hope Hospice invites individuals from our local communities to create and/or donate existing artwork that will be distributed to hospice patients in homes and nursing facilities in the Tri-Valley area and neighboring East Bay cities. “When a person is facing the end of his or her journey on this Earth, the patient and family experience a range of emotions that vary from day to day,” says Nikki Tildesley, Hope’s Manager of Volunteer Services. “Our volunteers play a significant role supporting support the patient and family in whatever ways are needed. Often, it’s just being a comforting presence at the bedside. But with face-to-face visits from volunteers being suspended in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, this new art program is a creative way to continue brightening our patients’ surroundings.”
 
How the public can participate:

  • Make a piece of art in a medium of your choosing that can be displayed on a wall or tabletop.
  • Donate a piece of existing art.
  • Recruit friends or family to participate.
  • Collect and deliver artwork contributions to the Hope Hospice office in Dublin, California.
 
Please help us spread the word. The program’s website is HopeHospice.com/art. For questions or more information regarding submissions and artwork delivery to our office, the public can contact:
