DaySpring Hospice builds new wheelchair ramp for patient

When a specific, special need arises in the community, the DaySpring Hospice Team does its best to help.

With the financial support of the DaySpring Hospice Foundation, a non-profit organization formed to support individuals and families of those affected by a terminal illness and hardworking company volunteers, DaySpring was able to build a wheelchair ramp for one of its patients.

“This ramp gives this patient more freedom, allowing safe access in and out of the home,” Volunteer coordinator Pamela Doster said. “The company, with the help of its foundation, finds it a privilege to provide additional support to its patients in their final months. Whether it be putting food on the table, helping cover travel expenses for a family member or funeral expenses for a patient, DaySpring wants people to know they are not alone during this sacred time.”

The foundation raises funds through donations and fundraising. The next fundraising event is the Jingle Bell Market from Oct. 24-26 at the Dothan Civic Center. For additional information or to make a tax-deductible donation, please visit the company’s website at www.dayspringhospice.com.
