Memory Bear Training in Rhinelander
Hospice Memory Bear Training Welcomes Volunteers in Rhinelander
Memory Bears are beautiful, handmade stuffed animals constructed from the personal clothing of hospice patients served by Ministry Home Care - Hospice. The keepsakes are designed to bring the surviving family members closer to the memory of their loved one. Each bear is created by a special group of volunteers with the individual in mind, using the clothing the patient or family has selected as special to them. The bears serve as a lasting comfort to those who have lost their loved ones.
Volunteers are welcome! Sewers should be skilled as they often work independently. This opportunity allows each sewer to use their skill and creativity to construct each special memory bear. Sewers will be able to schedule their sewing time to fit their schedules, as well as doing work in their own home. New volunteers will use the provided pattern to make the memory bear and any needed assistance or advice is always available for sewers. The first Memory Bear training will be held 10 a.m. – Noon on January 17, 2017 at the Ministry Home Care Hospice office located at 111 E. Davenport Street, Suite 101 in Rhinelander.
Anyone interested in joining Ministry’s Memory Bear Program is asked to call Mel Houg at 800.643.4663 for more information.
