Memory is a painter—it paints pictures of the past and of the day.”
–Anna Mary Robertson Moses
Heartland Hospice recently presented a special memory enrichment workshop at Azura Memory Care of Manitowoc. The residents and their families made memory boxes to keep and store treasured mementos and really had a fun time doing it. Residents were given choices of papers, stickers and other embellishments to really make their boxes personal. Thank you Wendy Limberg, Anne Hertel and Bryan Johnson for sharing your time and creativity.
This workshop made possible by a grant from the Heartland Hospice Memorial Fund.
"We want to thank you for the loving special care you took of our mother, Diane. It was truly mom's home and you all became part of our family. Everything was home for her....from the beautiful rooms, large sunny windows all around, good food made with love, fun and personal activities from people who really loved our mom. We would highly recommend your facility to anyone. The staff from the director, to the doctor, to the nurse, to the caregivers and the maintenance man were all extremely helpful, caring, loving and professional. There are not enough words to say how much we appreciate all of you. Your exceptional care, kindness, and love were beyond anything we could have imagined. You were part of our family, and we will miss you." - Gail Sommers and Deborah Guse
