Rice Hospice – Appleton proudly unveiled their new family room at Appleton Area Health Services. A $10,000 donation from the Arlys Heinecke estate made this transformation possible. The new room is located in the west wing of the Appleton Nursing Home. It’s decorated with a leather hide-a-bed and chairs, flat screen television, kitchenette and dining table and chairs. It also has a private bathroom with a shower. Hospice family members can use this to take a break from visiting their loved one or spend the night if necessary.
