The grant funds will be used to replace the worn beds, mattresses and sleeper chairs that The Joseph and Vera Long Foundation procured for the six patient rooms in the house when it opened in 2004.
This grant marks the third in the past three years that The Joseph and Vera Long Foundation has presented to Hospice of the East Bay for Bruns House renovations, including remodeling the nurses station, upgrading computer cabinets and the computers and individual heating and air conditioning units in each room.
“We are very grateful to the trustees of the Joseph and Vera Long Foundation this most generous grant,” stated Cindy Hatton, Chief Executive Officer for Hospice of the East Bay. “The Joseph and Vera Long Foundation’s commitment to Hospice of the East Bay represents their dedication to the comfort and care of Bruns House patients and their families.”
Established in 1977, Hospice of the East Bay is a nonprofit agency that helps people cope with the end of life by providing medical, emotional, spiritual and practical support for patients and families, regardless of their ability to pay.
