Recent Activities:

Divine Savior Healthcare is implementing a new program on the Medical Surgical Floor and the Intensive Care Unit through a group called TCAB (Transforming Care At Bedside). Comfort Care Bags will be distributed to the patient and patientís families that are at the end-of-life and receiving comfort care. Comfort care is care that helps or soothes a person who is dying. The goal is to prevent or relieve suffering as much as possible while respecting the dying personís wishes. The hope for this program is to deliver the best possible care for patients and their families throughout the dying process.
     Calico Capers Quilt Guild is donating  lap quilts for the comfort care bags. More about this project is in an article:
