Working with Daniel's Care
Our local Hospice for Children
Daniel's Care is the pediatric arm of Hospice here in the central Kentucky area. All hospices have a pediatric division; just not named Daniel's Care, as this was named after Rick Pitino's son, Daniel, who passed away as a child. For those who don't know who Rick Pitino is, he was our UK Basketball coach several years ago before he moved to the northeast to coach a professional team and then came back to Kentucky (they always do), but took a different position than UK when he became the coach for Louisville. Enough on that, though!
From Bev: Charity involvement, volunteer work, helping others in need, having a giving heart...whatever it may be, please get involved somewhere. My mother volunteered at the Ronald McDonald House (after she retired) for 15 years and my dad, a veteran, volunteered (pushing other veterans to appointments in wheelchairs) at the Veteran's Hospital for as long as he could until his health started failing. Whatgreat examples were set before me.
From Tim: Always looking for a way to leave others better than I find them, I feel we found the perfect match in Daniel's Care. Having a father who spent his life in a wheelchair as a paraplegic prepared me to be able to handle those with special needs and having a heart for children and the skills to hand-print fine art portraits that will last for generations came together to form a perfect union with this arm of hospice.
Daniel's Care is a special pediatric care program provided by Hospice of the Bluegrass. A specially trained team of multi-disciplinary professionals works specifically with children who have life-threatening illnesses. This specialized team cares for anyone from birth to 21 years of age. Using this Hospice service allows children to be at home with family and friends maintaining a familiar lifestyle.
Walden's Photography donates one session and a matted, framed, black and white wall portrait each month to Daniel's Care. We also collect for the Indigent Fund which helps purchase items not covered by insurance for Daniel's Care families such as special strollers or car seats, stuffed animals, birthday cakes and more.
You can contact us to donate to the Indigent Fund at firstname.lastname@example.org.
