Novant Health Hospice - Help Loved Ones of Patients by Creating Memory Bears!

The last great thing to happen to someone is a hospice volunteer.

Novant Health Hospice is seeking volunteers to create Memory Bears for the loved ones of our patients!

Once a patient has passed, the loved ones of this person begin the long journey of grief. This can and does look different for people of all ages. Part of the pain of the grief journey can be alleviated through sharing stories, trading memories, and having keepsakes from your loved one: their favorite hat, the blanket they always had on their lap, a piece of jewelry they loved.

Novant Health Hospice is creating a program to honor our patients by creating Memory Bears for family members. Loved ones can request a Memory Bear, and provide a piece of the patient’s clothing (such as their favorite shirt), and have a small bear created from that clothing (this makes a wonderful gift for children!).

In order to get this program started, we need your help! If you love to sew and are looking for an opportunity to give back to your community, we would love to have you on our team! All materials and patterns will be provided with every request, and these can be made in the comfort of your own home (a great option for serving your community while staying safe during our current covid-19 distancing precautions).

If you are interested in this opportunity, please reach out to Brittney Grubb, Volunteer Services Coordinator. She can be reached at:

Mission Statement

We the employees and physician partners will deliver the most remarkable patient experience in every dimension, every time.

Description

Providing care for a loved one who is sick and can no longer look after themselves can be one of the biggest challenges a family has to face. These conditions can arise from old age, severe illness or crippling injuries, but regardless of the cause, we believe that no family should have to face these challenges alone.

Our hospice services provide a wide range of services and care-giving that can help patients and their loved ones when it is needed the most. Comfort, compassion and dignity are at the forefront of the care we provide.

Our hospice care specialists provide care for terminally ill patients and their families. We know how sensitive these times may be, and our goal is to provide patients and their families with effective healthcare that will improve the quality of a patient’s last days.

We provide an individualized treatment plan to comfortably manage pain and physical symptoms of each need a patient may have. Our team is made of doctors, nurses, medical social workers, chaplains, grief counselors, and volunteers that work together to help patients live life as comfortably and fulfilled as possible.
