Family and Elders Program
Kishia Mason is a remarkable young woman. She came to Bessie's Hope looking for a way to be of service. In April of 2015, she began to volunteer through Bessie's Hope at Cedars Healthcare Center. She has been going to their memory care unit once a month ever since.
Kishia is totally blind. She has a machine that allows her to read the written word. She reads to the residents, sometimes one to one and sometimes with a small group.
One of the volunteers pictured is Carlos. He is also blind. The two have a beautiful camaraderie. The other resident pictured is Lynda. She is seen here in a photo with her husband of over 50 years!
Kishia is the essence of Bessie's Hope - she is making a difference! Much thanks.
