Hospice Memory Bears Help Keep Loved One’s Memory Alive
The caring nature of the Weeks community is embodied in the volunteers of Northwoods Home Health & Hospice. The Hospice volunteers at Northwoods have been creating Memory Bears from loved ones clothing since 2008. Bears can be made out of a favorite pair of jeans or shirt, dress, bathrobe, nightgown or any special piece of clothing that is personal and holds emotional sentiment. These beautiful heirloom custom made bears are meant to 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.
