Karen R, the daughter of a client who receives personal care waiver services and has strong interests in home health care advocacy, oversees a family-run volunteer program started last year called Betty and the Bear. This program donates hand-made teddy bears to people with dementia and anyone who has had an organ transplant letting them know that they are special and cared for by many. Last year, they donated 55 bears. For more information about this program, or how you can help sew a bear, please email me at [email protected].
