About

VITAS Healthcare Sewing Volunteers make a variety of items to provide bereavement support and personal comfort for our Hospice Patients and their families.

Memory Bear Crafters make sewn bears to ease a hurting heart after the death of a VITAS Healthcare patient. The bears are sewn from items of the patient's clothing. A Memory Bear may recall the closeness of a loved one, bring a smile to someone in distress, or offer a sense of security to a child who feels alone after the loss of a grandparent, parent or sibling.

Veteran Bear Crafters make sewn bears that are prsented to a VITAS Healthcare patient who has served in our Armed Forces. The bears are sewn from patriotic fabric or military uniforms that are no longer fit for service.

Comfort Items are presented to patients to provide emotional support and dignity. Lap blankets, clothing protectors, walker bags etc...
