A Simple Storage Solution Helps Lander Hospice Patients Receive Free Equipment

A $11,653 grant to Anam Cara Giving on November 5, 2021

When it comes to end-of-life care, quality of life for patients is far greater when they are able to stay in their homes. The problem is that in-home hospice care is also expensive. Fortunately, one of Lander’s two hospice services, Anam Cara Giving—soon to be a nonprofit—provides equipment (mechanical lifts, bedside commodes, wheelchairs, hospital beds, etc.) to patients for free. Having a secure place to store that specialized equipment is essential to being able to serve even more people, so Anam Cara’s founder reached out to the LOR Foundation with an idea: Install a storage shed that would allow her to buy and store more equipment, thus serving even more patients. In addition to providing support for the shed, LOR also helped Anam Cara Giving apply for nonprofit status.
