News from Beaver Island Hospice & Helping Hands

We have entered our 8th year of service to the Island community, and are pleased that we helped 13 patients in 2002. Our purpose is to provide respite care for a patient's care giver; do personal care when necessary; run errands; and occasionally provide meals. You will find educational materials at the Library and Medical Center lobby. Feel free to use these.

We like to emphasize the “Helping Hands” part of our title, as our services are not limited to the terminally ill but are available to any member of the community with a legitimate need. To request help please call Joyce Runberg (2387) or Lois Williams (2475).
Many of you know we maintain a loan closet at the Med Center. Somehow a virus got loose here and invaded the web as: www.don' We hear it’s affecting movie and book returns as well. If your family has this virus, we can help you. Try returning borrowed items you no longer need.
We will be working on the Sept. 13th Health Fair with co-chairmen Pam Grassmick and Audrey Beilman, the B.I. school, and the Med Center.

Many thanks go to those who have donated money to our organization. This is greatly appreciated; it’s our only source of income.

–Joyce Runberg
