Dignity Health
  • Memorial Gifts


    As we reflect on the patients and families we have cared for in our community over the last 20 years we are reminded of the purity of the word “comfort”. To comfort means to soothe, console, reassure, support, and encourage. Many people ask what they can do to support Hoffmann Hospice in continuing to provide comfort to those that need it most.

    Often, families of Hoffmann Hospice patients choose to give memorial gifts to honor their loved ones. Many families ask that gifts be made to Hoffmann Hospice “in lieu of flowers” or “in addition to flowers”, and we greatly appreciate those gifts to help us continue our mission. Hoffmann Hospice sends acknowledgments to the designated family member anytime a donation has been made in memory of their loved one.

    Memorial gifts, particularly around important dates like birthdays, anniversaries, and holidays, are a special way to let someone know you are thinking about them. In addition, Hoffmann Hospice holds an annual candlelight remembrance and tree lighting ceremony the first Tuesday in December every year called Light Up A Life.
