Homeland Hospice

A GREAT OPPORTUNITY TO SERVE FROM YOUR HOME! PARTICIPANTS MUST BE IN THE CUMBERLAND, DAUPHIN, YORK, PERRY COUNTY PENNSYLVANIA AREAS TO ALLOW FOR DROP-OFF AND PICK-UP OF ITEMS.

Bereavement care is an essential component of Homeland Hospice’s services that involves providing ongoing support for the bereaved over a period of 13 months. When a loved one passes away, we tend to reach for objects that might steady us, a tangible reminder of the person we have lost. Homeland Hospice would like to provide a tangible reminder in the form of Memory Pillows. Memory Pillows, made from a loved one’s special shirt or clothing, provides not only a visual reminder, but is also something to hug and hold onto.

If you are an experienced sewer and would enjoy sharing your talent to bring comfort to others, contact us! Clean clothing will be provided to you, as well as, stuffing material (if requested). You will have the opportunity to create a one-of-a-kind-piece dependent on the article of clothing provided and any embellishments or designs on the fabric. Numerous ideas and instructions can be obtained on-line.

For more information or to become part of this program, contact Laurie Murry, Volunteer Coordinator at lmurry@homelandhospice.org or 717-409-8882
