When you think of hospice volunteering, sewing may not be the first thing that comes to mind. But if you’re someone who can sew and loves to make handcrafted items, Beth Israel Lahey Health at Home's Hospice Memory Bear Program may be just what you are looking for. Families are incredibly moved, grateful and very appreciative upon receiving their Memory Bear(s) and you can be the volunteer who makes this happen!

You will have the honor of creating a bear from garments once worn by the patient, such as a favorite shirt, sweater, dress, night gown, jacket or maybe even a blanket that was special to the patient. (Please Note: all items are properly sanitized before being given to the volunteer). These garments are then transformed into memorable teddy bears by our volunteer seamstresses. We give our Memory Bear Volunteers 4-8 weeks from when they receive the clothing to make the Memory Bear. We will provide a Memory Bear pattern, the fill for the bears and eyes too, if you would like.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Mission Statement

Beth Israel Lahey Health is here to drive the change Massachusetts wants and needs. We’re doing things differently, but it’s more than that. We’re here to help our patients, their families, our communities and health care as a whole, be healthier.

Description

We offer programs to meet the complex needs of patients and their families coping with advanced illness. These programs include palliative care, bridge-to-hospice, hospice at home and residential hospice. The unique aspect of our care is that the bridge and hospice programs are coordinated by the hospice team, which assures that patients receive care from a care team with extensive experience and training in managing symptoms. This care team remains the same as patients transition to different levels of care.
