About

VITAS Healthcare Memory Bear Crafters make sewn bears with compassion and love to ease a hurting heart after the death of a VITAS Healthcare patient. The bears are sewn from items of the patient's clothing.

A Memory Bear may recall the closeness of a loved one, bring a smile to someone in distress, or offer a sense of security to a child who feels alone after the loss of a grandparent, parent, or sibling.

The fabric is provided by the family. The pattern, stuffing, ribbon, buttons and support are provided by VITAS Healthcare. Creativity is provided by the Memory Bear volunteers.

This is an opportunity to use your talents or hobbies to make a difference in someone's life and work with a group that meets in Palm Bay, Florida. No professional experience necessary. If you cannot sew by hand or machine, you can cut the pattern, stuff the bears and attach the ribbon.
