Resident or family member can record a special message for their loved one on the recording device that comes with the bear. The recorder is stitched into place by our volunteers. Fashioned with a hand-stitched back pack where hand written notes or mementos can be placed.
Resident and family can create a special family tree utilizing the fingerprint of each family member. When complete, the final print is framed for the family to take home.
A beautiful poem about love adorns this memento. When it is difficult to verbally express your love for another, this project provides an alternate form of communication.
This project provides a beautiful detailed replica of a loved ones hand/hands. The project can be done with a Resident and their loved one holding hands or with just the Residents hands.
This project combines music and the heart beat of a loved one. A recording of your loved ones heart beat is taken utilizing a special stethoscope. Our Music Therapist can then record the heart beat along with a meaningful song to create a beautiful memento. Alternately the heartbeat can be recorded on a recording device and stitched into a stuffed bear.
SOUND OF YOUR LOVE
A simple service that allows families and friends to leave messages for their loved one via a centralized phone number. The messages can be managed online and accessed by a care provider from the phone in the Residents room.
