The memory lamp room is a small nook of Rosedale Hospice with a couch and a small patio. It is home to our memory lamp, a long-standing tradition for us. It is turned on traditionally by a family member once their person has died. The lamp stays lit for a day following the death. The patient’s memorial card is also placed by the lamp before being moved to the memorial wall in the chapel.
Next to the memory lamp, on a hand carved quilt stand, is our dignity quilt. It was designed and hand stitched by volunteers with the goal to create a dignity quilt to cover our patients during their final journey out of Rosedale Hospice.
Comfortable chairs welcome those who wish to sit in this room of remembering.
