White Rock South Surrey Hospice Society's dignified gesture
A labour of love one year in the making is to add dignity to the journey of death.
Officials with White Rock South Surrey Hospice Society presented the “Dignity Quilt” to staff of the Peace Arch Hospice Residence last week.
The handcrafted quilt – made by members of the Fraser Valley Quilters Guild and featuring a dove surrounded by hearts – will be used to cover the body of a deceased individual as they are moved out of the hospice residence.
“The intention of this quilt is to help preserve the dignity of patients, their families and friends with care and compassion,” society acting executive director Theresa Robson said.
