Diakon Hospice Saint John and Home Health- Honesdale offers services to people of any age who have an illness that is no longer responding to aggressive, curative treatment. Their mission is to provide care and comfort to terminal patients and their loved ones within their home settings, while serving as an educational resource. As the holiday season approaches, they seek to collect items needed by local non-profit agencies in the area. Items on the collection wish list for this season include the following: Twin size sheets for hospital beds; quilted washable bed underpads; scented body lotions and soaps; recently released books on CD and monetary contributions.
