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.
