Holiday music, family photos of seasons past, and the place at the table where someone special used to sit can all be reminders of family or friends who are no longer here to share this special time of year. That loss can make it difficult to join in holiday activities.
Once again, Saskatoon Health Region’s Palliative Care Services have provided a way for people to deal with their feelings. It is called “The Memory Tree”. The Memory Tree offers grieving loved ones the opportunity to remember and reflect by attaching a memory card in honour of those they have lost.
Palliative Care Services encourages you to come to Market Mall from Monday, November 17 to Saturday, November 29 to write out your memory card and hang it on the Memory Tree. Volunteers will be on hand to help. There is no cost to place a memory card. However, gift envelopes will be available for anyone wishing to make a donation to St. Paul’s Hospital Foundation - Palliative Care Services.
The Memory Tree will remain on display until Boxing Day.
