Clara’s House is home to a vibrant network of staff, volunteers, donors and other friends who put into action the FirstHealth core purpose to care for people. Clara’s House embraces a caring community of givers – whether giving a warm welcome to new guests, baking goodies for guest breakfasts or tending the Healing Garden.
To further demonstrate that caring spirit, the Moore Regional Hospital Foundation established the CARE Funds as a way for donors with a special interest in or personal connection to a particular disease or health service to direct financial gifts to those areas. Clara’s House is home to the Cancer and Heart CARE Funds and their respective CARE-Net programs. These funds support the individual needs of patients including transporation, medication assistance and other related expenses as well suppot health education and encourage research and philanthropic support.
Patient advocacy is a key part of the CARE funds. Cancer CARE-Net and Cardiac CARE-Net pair specially trained volunteers with cancer and heart patients who need a sympathetic ear, a caring heart or a helping hand as they navigate the health care system. They help connect patients with necessary resources and, when needed, facilitate communication with medical providers.
Many CARE-Net volunteers are survivors of cancer or heart disease themselves, so they bring a special understanding to their roles.
