Make a Donation
When you send a donation to the Home Health United – Visiting Nurse Service Foundation, you make a difference in the lives of your friends and neighbors in need. Your donation assists those recovering from serious illness or injuries, supports families coping with terminal illness, helps children recover from acute illnesses and provides home health care to people who have no health insurance or are underinsured.
Your Gift, Your Choice
You can choose to direct your donation to any of the following funds or make an unrestricted gift that may be used by the Foundation for the Area of Greatest Need.
Area of Greatest Need: Your donation to our Area of Greatest Need supports the integrated and comprehensive variety of programs Home Health United provides including: Home Health Services, Hospice, Home Medical Equipment, and Community Health Services.
Hospice: Your donation supports our Volunteer and Grief Support programs (both of which are required by Medicare/Medicaid but are not reimbursed), upgrades and maintenance of the St. Clare Hospice House residential hospice facility, and capital needs of the Hospice program.
St. Clare Hospice House Resident Fund: While most people would prefer to stay at home during their final days, sometimes that is not possible. Your donation helps to cover room and board costs at the St. Clare Hospice House for those who are unable to afford them. While Medicare, Medicaid and most private insurance covers care associated with hospice services, they do not cover room and board costs for residential facilities. Your donation ensures that anyone, regardless of their financial situation, has access to the peaceful, home-like setting provided by the St. Clare Hospice House.
Granting Wishes: Your donation helps provide our Hospice patients with a wish as they near the end-of-life. Past wishes include: purchasing equipment for a bed-bound patient to take a bath; a limousine ride to enjoy a favorite meal; creating scrapbooks to preserve memories; a wedding ceremony; and a fishing trip to a local lake.
Meals On Wheels: Home Health United – Meals On Wheels volunteers deliver at hot, nutritious meal, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, to individuals in need in Madison, Middleton, Monona and Sun Prairie. Your donations support the program by providing funds for those who may not have the means to pay for meals, ensuring those in need do not go hungry.
Camp GLOW: Camp GLOW is a grief support day camp for kids who have been affected by a loss. Since kids and teens often experience and express grief in different ways than adults, the camp is designed to give children a safe place to share their feelings and concerns, with a wide range of activities and enough counselors on-site to give individual attention if needed. The Camp is offered at no charge to the participants.
