The bears are sewn from items of the patient's clothing: a favorite pair of jeans, shirt, pullover top, dress, bathrobe, nightgown, etc.
The fabric is provided by the family; the pattern, support and stuffing are provided by VITAS and the creativity is provided by the Memory Bear Volunteer. Bears can be made in the volunteer's home or at the VITAS office.
