PETERSBURG — The Spiritual Harmonizers, a group of singing Richmond postal workers best known for their appearance on America’s Got Talent, will perform a benefit concert for Crater Community Hospice’s in-home respite program. The concert will take place on June 15 from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m. at West End Baptist Church, 6506 Boydton Plank Road in North Dinwiddie. During the concert a love offering will be collected.
The in-home respite program provides a much-needed break for caregivers and allows the patient to stay in their home.
“It is our patient’s desire to stay at home and we need to raise funds to facilitate that. The hospice reimbursement provides limited respite opportunities and only in a facility,” said Tracy Taliaferro, Crater Community Hospice CEO.
One family member said, “The respite time is a great resource to give me a break to relax and relieve the stress of caregiving. Knowing that professionals are caring for my husband, I can enjoy my time away knowing he is safe and secure.”
As the only local non-profit hospice started by John Randolph and Southside Regional Medical Centers, Crater Community Hospice depends upon the giving of our community to support unfunded programs and services to the uninsured.
