What we do

In-Home Comfort Resource Kit

End-of-life care for a loved one who wishes to remain at home encompasses many details.

Our In-Home Comfort Resource Kit helps ensure the highest quality of life in the time that remains. We designed it in consultation with clients and caregivers to provide both comfort and information. Kits are tailored to the individual needs of a client. They may include a quilt donated by the Prince Edward Quilters Guild, skin cream, soothing music, a room monitor, wool socks, straws and a resource book.

Every kit includes an organizer binder to locate community resources, monitor equipment, schedule visits from family and friends, and a journal for one person to communicate with the next. An experienced hospice volunteer will bring the kit to the client's home. They will explain the kit and answer any questions.

The Home Comfort Resource Kit and the guidance of a hospice volunteer are invaluable in such a time of family need.

Hospice Prince Edward is grateful to the Prince Edward County Community Foundation for the funding to provide these kits.
