Grieving families now have something tangible they can hold on to when they are grieving their loved one who has recently passed. They have something to treasure and remember possibly "that was Dad's favorite shirt!" or "Mom's best apron and she always wore it when cooking family dinners". What ever article of clothing it's made from it will be a special reminder of who your loved one is and they will never be forgotten. Our volunteers make these pillows with love and are a gift from the hospice volunteers to our families.

About

Evercare Hospice and Palliative Care is continually looking for ways to assist our patients family through their grief after the death of their loved one. One way we do this is through our Memory Pillow Program. This program encourages the grieving family member to select an article of clothing to give to the Evercare Volunteer. Our amazing Volunteer(s) (that would be you) would then become very creative by either making a pillow (with stuffing) or pillow case and provide a pillow that will fit into the pillow case that you have made out of this clothing. The Volunteer will then bring back a unique pillow that is made especially for that particular family member. A Memory Pillow maybe just be an old shirt or dress but when it’s made into a new pillow its treasured not for its beauty, but for its memories. It is a keepsake for the family, something tangible for them. This pillow is a gift to the family and actually part of the grieving process. It’s a wonderful opportunity for a small woman’s group or just an individual looking for an opportunity to give back. Either way, this will simply be a blessing to someone else. We have families who will be overwhelmed with emotion and joy when they receive this gift of love. If this is a volunteer opportunity you would like to pursue, please contact us.
