We make memory bears and pillows for families that have been on hospice. These bears and pillows are made from the clothing of the patients. WE supply all the materials and instructions, patterns.

This is such a blessing to families to have such a lasting memory of their loved one. We made two bears for one family that were giving them to the only two granddaughters in the family. What a wonderful gift to have a bear made with your grandmas clothing.

We give you materials to make a sample bear first before you make one out of the clothing. This gives you a chance to know how everything fits together.

We usually have volunteers do background checks and finger prints, but since COVID there is no contact with patients we are requiring it at this time.

The Hospice Team is made up of professionals from a variety of disciplines and specially trained volunteers working under the stewardship of a Hospice medical director to meet the individual needs of terminally ill patients and their families.
