Many hairstylists would consider it a day of work, but those who spend Thursday mornings at Agrace HospiceCare in Fitchburg think it’s a day of magic.
“I love it,” Cost Cutters volunteer Angela McIntosh said. “It’s definitely the highlight of my week to come in.”
“This is my day off every week,” volunteer Beth Anderson said.
The volunteers wash, blow-dry and curl patients’ hair, all before the clock strikes noon.
“It’s that comb and that hand, that magic hand,” a hospice patient named Mary said.
