Ascend Hospice Memory Pillow Volunteers make home-sewn pillows with compassion and love to ease a hurting heart after the death of an Ascend Hospice patient. The pillows are sewn from items of the patient's clothing: a favorite pair of jeans, pullover top, dress, bathrobe, nightgown, etc. A Memory pillow 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.

The fabric is provided by the family; The pattern, support and stuffing are provided by Ascend Hospice and the creativity is provided by the Memory Pillow Volunteer. Pillows can be made in the volunteer's home and will be picked up by an Ascend Hospice staff member at the Volunteer’s home.
