Review for Gabriel House of care , Jacksonville, FL, USA
I first discovered Gabriel House of Care in Jacksonville when I moved to Beaches in 2015 and was looking for volunteer opportunities. I immediately fell in love with Gabriel House and it's mission of compassion, Camaraderie and Community to patients and caregivers of organ transplant and cancer treatment. My husband had a liver transplant in NYC Feb. '12. There was and is nothing like this there. As a spouse /caregiver of a transplant patient I know what it takes out of you both physically and emotionally. Gabriel House offers complimentary classes through it's Integrative Therapy Program that give both the patient and the caregiver the tools and support needed to help with the journey. These classes include Tia Chi, yoga, Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy, Nutritional Cooking Classes, and Art Therapy. I've been fortunate to have the opportunity to turn my volunteer work into a staff position . I am now the Development Officer and get to go out into the community to share all the amazing things that are happening here. I love being part of the team of gifted, special volunteers and coworkers that help to make Gabriel House of Care the Great place it is!
