Redstone Village, Hospice Family Care, Huntsville Hospital Foundation and Huntsville Hospital have teamed up to build the county’s first Inpatient Hospice Care facility on the campus of Redstone Village, a retirement community in South Huntsville.

We are seeking volunteers that would like to sew, quilt or crochet blankets to give as gifts to our patients. Any gift would be greatly appreciated but we have found a blanket that measures 50 x 60 is a nice size blanket to use on a bed, as a wrap or across a patients lap.

For those families that would like, we will offer an honor escort when a patient passes away. Staff and volunteers will pause and line the halls as the patients’ body is escorted down the hall by staff and family. Instead of a white sheet, the patients’ body will be covered with their blanket and will then be gifted to the family.

This will be an on-going project so we need a lot of help to make the gifts possible. Any help that you can give us by spreading the word about this need would be greatly appreciated.
