Donations transform hospice residence

for terminally ill

Donations to the Campaign for the Tippett Home are transforming

the hospice residence and ensuring its future as a homelike setting

for end-of-life care.

The kitchen, pictured, represents the extent of changes made

throughout the home that will make life more comfortable for

patients and families. The room was gutted and given a new layout.

The addition of an island will make meal preparation easier for

volunteers and staff. New cabinets and windows make the space

brighter. Loved ones can linger over a cup of coffee and get support

from staff, who have a new workstation just outside the kitchen.

After nearly 20 years of caring for families, the staff and volunteers at

the Tippett Home knew exactly what improvements were needed.

Jason McAvoy, Tippett Home manager, said, “The nourishment

station that was added to the second floor will give people easy access

to beverages and snacks. Clinicians and volunteers will spend less

time running downstairs to the kitchen, and more time tending to

the needs of patients and their loved ones.”

Donors have helped VNA Care Network & Hospice reach 73% of

the $2 million goal. Donations may be made on our website or using

the enclosed donation envelope. Giving options also include pledges

payable over three years, securities/stocks, and naming opportunities.

Donors whose combined giving to the campaign equals $1,000 or

more will be listed on a plaque at the Tippett Home unless they

prefer to remain anonymous.

More photos documenting renovations made possible through our

donors’ generous gifts are available at and (don’t forget to like us to

show your support).
