Hospice Patients are More Comfortable:
"As a hospice nurse, one of my most important goals is to provide comfort to my patients. In so many ways this can be very challenging. I can provide medicine for pain or symptom relief. I can talk gently and reassuringly to the patient and the families. I can provide personal care and assistance. But, how do I offer physical warmth? We provided "Sleepy Sleeves" to a frail, elderly patient who was bedbound and resided in a long term care facility. He was so appreciative because he was able to sit up in bed without the frustration of his covers sliding down. The extra warmth across his shoulders relieved the "draft" he always felt. It made his stay in a nursing home more tolerable and everyone involved in his care benefited from the "Sleepy Sleeves". We as caregivers felt fulfilled and the patient was content and comfortable."

Power Outage in Pennsylvania from the Great "Snowtober Storm" of 2011:
"I just wanted to let you know we survived our 4+ days of power outage much more comfortably with our Bookworm sleeves!! With an afghan over our legs, Bookworm Sleeves on our arms, we were toasty warm, without the constant tugging to keep the afghan from falling off of our shoulders! And reading in bed was comfy cozy! Thanks!"
Tina Ruf from Reading, PA
