Memory Bears

Lap Blankets
Material and designs of your choice. Some favorites have been bright colors yarns or material with designs of birds, horses, dogs and cats. The blankets are given to patients in our program to brighten their day. With each blanket given, a touch of warmth, care and comfort is added to their days. (patterns available)

Veteran Blankets
Veteran specific quilts, red, white and blue, needed for Veterans in our program. Veteran quilts are presented along with appreciation certification and a lapel pin as part of the We Honor Veterans program.

Neck or Heart Pillows
Typically made from cotton or other soft materials. Requested by our nurses to assist positioning patients for comfort. (patterns available)

About ViaQuest Hospice

Mission Statement

It’s hard to know where to turn for help when facing a serious illness. ViaQuest can improve the quality of life for those living with chronic and terminal diseases and conditions. These diseases slowly decrease an individual’s ability to live life to its fullest. There comes a time when seeking a cure may no longer be possible or in one’s best interest and the focus turns to quality of life. When that happens ViaQuest Hospice may be the answer. Our care is not focused on the disease, but on pain relief and symptom control, making it easier for you to keep your focus where it should be - on living more fully. Our core services are at the heart of what we do. We are experts in providing high-quality, cost-effective home health, hospice, and behavioral health care that goes beyond just service. We also specialize in caring for individuals with developmental disabilities, offering innovative services that help people live their best lives possible.
