The Gardens of Remembrance and Renewal are situated on the 11-acre property of Center for Hospice Care’s Elkhart Campus adjacent to the newly renamed Esther’s House. The gardens are a place where patients and families can connect with loved ones or simply enjoy nature in a peaceful setting next to the babbling brook. The gardens also offer opportunities for families to honor their loved ones through memorial bricks and benches, as well as flowering and evergreen trees.
The purchase of memorial items also helps ensure that everyone who may be eligible for hospice care in the future will receive the compassionate care they need, regardless of their ability to pay.
The Gardens were dedicated in June in a ceremony that brought donors and family members together to reflect on the lives and memories of those honored in the gardens.
