Providence Hospice needs your sewing talents to create Memory Bears and Pillows for the families of patients who have passed away. These items can bring security, comfort, and a feeling of closeness to both children and adults coping with loss.

Memory Bears/Pillows are sewn from a favorite pair of jeans, a blouse/shirt, dress or any garment provided by the family. The result is a special keepsake to hug and hold in memory of their loved one.

Use your special skills to bring a little smile to the face of a grieving individual, and remind them that others are supporting and thinking of them.

Hospice provides all materials and pattern. For more information, please contact phhcvolunteer@providence.org

Mission Statement

As expressions of God’s healing love, witnessed through the ministry of Jesus, we are steadfast in serving all, especially those who are poor and vulnerable.

Description

Volunteers with Providence Hospice and HomeCare of Snohomish County help provide emotional and practical support to those who are facing a terminal illness. We serve patients and families throughout Snohomish county, wherever they may call home (private residence, nursing facility, adult family home, etc.) Volunteers can serve in their own community. Volunteers may help by providing companionship for patients, respite for caregivers, transportation to appointments, assistance with errands such as grocery shopping, and much more. Complementary Therapists also provide massage therapy, music therapy, animal-assisted interactions, meditation, and other modalities to provide comfort to patients. Volunteers also provide support to our bereaved family members through one-on-one listening support, co-facilitating a children, teens or adult grief group, or as a volunteer at Camp Erin (an overnight, weekend camp for children and teens who have lost a loved one). In addition, volunteers help support our mission through administrative work in our offices.
