Quilt makers will display more than 100 quilts at the Hawke's Bay Hospital's Harding Hall for a fundraising event organized in the wake of World Palliative Care Day. The quilts are from the region of Taradale Village.
According to Palliative Care clinical nurse specialist Gloria Morgan, the quilts are strongly linked to the cause because every year quilts are provided to the patients in the Palliative Care unit of the hospital and in Cranford Hospice.
According to Ms. Morgan, quilts provide warmth and relieve the patients from their sufferings. Morgan shows her gratitude to all the quilt makers from the village that was supporting the cause generously. The quilts exhibited the beautiful patterns, with exclusive form of craftsmanship.
The quilts will be exhibited for two consecutive days on October 6 and 7 from 9 am to 3 pm. The fund collected from the display event will go to Cranford Hospice, the Hospital Palliative Care Team and to a Memorial Garden at Hawke's Bay Hospital.
Meanwhile, four out of five hospitals conducting palliative care programs in New Jersey have been reported of having poor health care standards. Though there have been remarkable developments in the palliative care segment, the truth is that still millions of people in the US were deprived of the care services.
