At Carroll Hospice, therapeutic music empowers the human spirit—even in the most difficult of times. Lydia Bandy and Jo Morrison know firsthand the power of therapeutic music. Their harp performances at Dove House—Carroll Hospice’s inpatient facility—have literally awakened the soul.
Thank you to all who supported A Season to Remember, our annual holiday event to benefit Carroll Hospice.
This year’s event raised more than $18,000 through ornament sales, the holiday auction and generous donations.
The year was 1908. It was the year the first New Year’s Eve ball dropped in New York City’s Times Square, Henry Ford’s company built the first Model T and Oklahoma became the 46th state in the Union. And it was the year Genevieve Duffy was born.
Genevieve, of Westminster, passed away in June, weeks after her 111th birthday.
When there isn’t a lot of time and unexpected circumstances arise, cooperation and flexibility are key indicators of how well a team functions under pressure. Lorna Rice, Carroll Hospice social worker, and Art Monroe, Carroll Hospice chaplain, are a prime example of teamwork at its best. The duo was recently named team of the month for the comfort they provided during a patient’s final hours.
I love scrapbooking! This simple activity affords me the opportunity to spend highly coveted time with dear friends, showcase the wee bit of creativity that I inherited and because I am so very behind in putting pictures to paper, I am able to re-live precious memories and joy-filled celebrations.
