Paying tribute to those we love.
What better way to honor the memory of a loved one than with a message of love. Celebrate a life lived with an engraved granite tribute plaque displayed in the VNA Hospice House memorial area, appropriately named, A Place For Remembering. Tribute plaques are available to anyone who wishes to remember a loved one – not just those who have been served by VNA Hospice.
A Place For Remembering
The focal point of A Place For Remembering is a fountain uniquely constructed from historical parts used by sugar plantations during the 19th century. Creatively displayed, the eclectic water feature provides a calming atmosphere among the sleek, black plaques displaying messages of commemoration for loved ones. This space was designed with seating incorporated into the structure so loved ones can reflect in a tranquil and serene environment.
Creating a lasting impact
Contributions through tribute plaques support the VNA Hospice House Endowment. The VNA Hospice House Endowment provides financial assistance so that the hospice house can continue to care for individuals who are unable to receive hospice care in their homes, facilities or hospital.
The VNA Hospice House offers a peaceful setting for residents and families who are in need of quality and compassionate care. It has proven to be a critical, end-of-life care resource in our community that elevates the standard of care for future generations.
A Place For Remembering was developed due to the generosity and philanthropic support of Lou and John Furrer.
“We were proud to be donors who supported the launch of the Hospice House. Since then, we have had many friends spend their last days there. We think it is a wonderful place and wanted to continue to support the house in any way we could.” – John Furrer
