Do you love to sew? Are you creative? AccentCare Hospice & Palliative Care *formerly Seasons Hospice and Palliative Care is looking for individuals or groups of people who can share their creative talents to help in the healing process for grieving families. We create one-of-a-kind Memory Bears and Memory Pillows. These very special items are lovingly created using the clothing of our Hospice patients that have passed away.

Families kindly donate a favorite shirt, blouse, T-shirt, nightgowns, sweatshirts, etc. to be created into the Memory Bears and Memory Pillows. These items are then gifted back to our families who have experienced the loss of a loved one. We supply all the necessary supplies and patterns that are needed to create these projects. This is a wonderful way to give back to families we serve knowing that your creative talents will live on in the hearts of our families.
