25th Annual Central VNA Hospice Tree of Memories

Commitment, caring, and community is part of the hospice philosophy. If a friend or a loved one has ever benefited from hospice then you already understand that it is a special kind of care, unlike any other. The hospice philosophy recognizes that dying is a part of living and focuses on enhancing the quality of remaining life. Families discover that though sorrow lingers… love is stronger.

The Hospice Tree of Memories is one of the most meaningful and poignant events of the holiday season. Because of the pandemic, this year it will have a different look. On Saturday, December 12th, our 25th annual ceremonial service will offer everyone an opportunity to share a loss and even shed a few tears in remembrance through a virtual online celebration. 

The Tree of Memories is a time when we pause to honor those we have lost whether hospice was part of their final days or not. By placing an inscribed porcelain dove… a symbol of serenity, peace and tranquility… on one of four lighted trees, we accomplish this tribute. As in previous years, we will once again be offering those doves but in order to prevent large gatherings, our hospice advisory committee members will hang your dove on the tree for you. You may, of course, visit your Tree of Memories afterwards to see your dove at one of the following locations:

• Huggins Hospital Main Entrance
• Wakefield Town Hall
• Moulton Farm, Meredith
• Pearson Road Community & Senior Center, Alton

Covid-19 Pandemic

Central New Hampshire VNA & Hospice continues to serve patients and will plan to do so into the foreseeable future. Working closely with our community partners, our goal during this pandemic is to provide the needed home based services our community requires.
It is our intention that our patients will not see a big change in their care. What they might notice is the addition of a number of screening questions when scheduling a visit with one of our clinicians.
