This volunteer program is a way to capture the memories of patients in their own words. Fully certified hospice volunteers receive additional specialized training in order to participate in the Memory Catcher program.

When a Memory Catcher candidate is identified, a Memory Catcher volunteer is then assigned to go to their home with the appropriate equipment and permission from the patient and/or family. The Memory Catcher volunteer records the patient using the guided questions provided during their specialized training to elicit the person’s history. The patient can be interviewed once or several times---there is no set procedure as each one’s story is different. Most often, the Memory Catcher recording can be completed in 1-2 sessions. Release forms are obtained from the responsible party prior to any recordings.

The Memory Catcher volunteer then edits the recording or turns in the recording for editing to the volunteer coordinator. The video recording is edited to remove extraneous noises, pauses, and to better streamline the video into something enjoyable for family and others.
