Hospice receives $10K grant to upgrade furniture at Martin-Linsin Residence
Press Release, Hospice of Orleans
ALBION – Hospice of Orleans is pleased to announce that it has received a generous grant for furniture upgrades to the Martin-Linsin Residence which opened in 2012. A check in the amount of $10,000 was received through the Orleans County Foundation, Inc.
“The Martin-Linsin Residence has served nearly 200 patients and their families since opening its doors in 2012,” said Brittany Dix, Development Manager. “Our staff has discovered some typical wear and tear on some of the well-used furniture.”
The grant will allow Hospice to purchase furniture in each of the patient rooms as well as in the communal area, and also will allow for the purchase of larger televisions for each of the patient rooms.
“This is especially significant as some patients spend a good deal of their time in their rooms, and watching television is something they can initiate independently,” Dix said. “This furniture upgrade and purchase of larger televisions will undoubtedly have a positive impact on the quality of life for our patients and the family members that visit.”
Hospice of Orleans extends sincere gratitude to the Elizabeth Dye Curtis Trust and the Orleans County Foundation for this very generous grant and helping Hospice of Orleans to provide care that is about living.
