From our Coordinator of Volunteers and Client Services:
"We have learned so much through the years about what it means to provide care
to an individual or family. Caring means to make someone feel loved and
appreciated, to boost self worth. The care
our complementary care
professionals bring does just that."

It does not replace conventional medical care
