The Allegany County Area Foundation recently presented a $1,100 check to the Hart Comfort House. This money will be used to purchase blinds for use throughout the house. They will save energy in summer and winter and provide for a more comfortable environment for the residents.
Scott Swift, Executive Director of the Hart Comfort House said, “The blinds will bring comfort to all that come here. Whether it’s the resident that takes pleasure in the soft shaded light that comes through the closed shade, or the volunteers at night that find comfort in the privacy the blinds provide. As winter sets in I hope to experience a reduction in the drafts, which sometimes blow in from the cold outdoors. Also, they will look great. Thank you for helping us to bring quality to our residents lives.”
The Hart Comfort House offers free comfort care for those in their last three months of a terminal illness. Comfort care honors the well-being of every person and respects the dignity of human life. The Hart Comfort House is a warm and welcoming alternative to hospital or a nursing home care when a person can no longer be looked after in his or her own home.
Hart Comfort House’s staff and trained volunteers are able to care for two residents at a time, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. They provide warm and compassionate care and support, not only to residents, but also to residents’ families and friends.
