1/8/2018 When a child loses a loved one to death, life is filled with gaps emotionally, mentally and physically. Home Nursing Agency Healing Patch sewing volunteers give their time and talents to bridge that physical gap and give children a tangible connection through memory bears and pillows from items belonging to the loved one. 

11/16/2018 Of the 1.1 million people in the United States living with HIV/AIDS, one in seven individuals does not know he/she is infected, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). As World AIDS Day is observed on Dec. 1, it serves as a reminder for individuals to undergo HIV testing. The CDC advises that all people from ages 13-64 should be tested for HIV/AIDS once in their lifetime.


During the holiday season, many times our thoughts turn to those we love – our family and friends who celebrate the joy of the season with us and those who are no longer here but whose memory burns brightly in our hearts.
