Bear Hugs

Through its RWJ Barnabas Health Hospice joint venture, VNAHG offers our hospice patient families a special service: a Bear Hugs keepsake to preserve precious memories.  Each Memory Bear is thoughtfully crafted from the garments of a loved one. Our team of skilled volunteer seamstresses are committed to providing this “lasting Hug” to bereaved family members.
