About

What if you had a recording of your grandma simply saying, "I love you, honey," or of your father saying, "You're a wonderful daughter and I know you will always be okay."

Legacy projects are a beautiful way for us to invite our patients to share memories, stories, life lessons and important messages near the end of their lives - which then become treasured keepsakes for hospice families. Voice recordings, scrapbooking, and creating booklets and visual art pieces are just some of the ways that legacy projects take form. Elaborate or simple all are sacred and meaningful.

Our Legacy projects provide hospice families something tangible to hold on to, and something that can provide comfort and healing year after year, and generation after generation.

Legacy Volunteers complete our Patient Care Training, followed by additional training in life review interviewing techniques and planning with the Hospice Team concerning the type of project to be done.
