Do you sew? Would you like to provide comfort and support to families whose loved ones have died?
Through Memory Bears, Hospice of NGMC volunteers provide something special for the loved ones of a hospice patient who has died.
After a hospice patient dies, family will be given the opportunity to have a memory bear made out of their loved one's garments. Hospice volunteers that are experienced in sewing take the garments and transform them into memorable teddy bears.
The bears are then presented back to the family. The fabric of the bear holds cherished memories for the family and they find it comforting to touch and hold something reminiscent of their loved one.
Your valuable skill may provide tremendous peace and comfort to a grieving family.
