Gather a group of 2 or 202 and  bring this event to you and those you wish to share a special evening of collective healing.  Remembering those who we have loved and lost.  When you Host a Walk this is your chance to ensure the compassionate care HHA can offer at end of life to be available where you call home... Not IF your time comes but WHEN your time comes. 

Being able to die wherever you call home DOES matter....

  • Families can host a great Halloween party…in July

  • Loved ones are able to gather by the bedside with no restrictive visiting policies

  • 911 is not called in fear

 

Help Home Hospice make this a  reality for every dying member of your community by bringing Moonlit Memory Walk to where you call home.

Where ever someone lays their head, we will make their hospice bed

Making a hospice bed wherever someone lays their head has meant individuals in some of the loneliest places, including wards in our hospitals, have not died alone or in distress.

 

That is thanks to past participants making the Moonlit Memory Walk an important priority.

 

Will you make this event important to you and those close to you?  

When October 28, 2023 draws to a close and you are thinking back to your decision to host a Walk, you will feel so proud to know you helped us draw the circle even wider to bring our “for anyone ~ of any age ~ at any time ~ under any roof” commitment to life for the thousands who need us most.
