The Bedside Art program of Gifts of Art has just released new Comfort Legacy Kits to provide support during delicate and sacred end-of-life moments. They are Free for Michigan Medicine families and guests and are intended to help preserve precious memories of loved ones in the time of transition. Made possible in part with a grant from the Kiwanis Club of Ann Arbor.
    This video has detailed information about the kits.

The Comfort Legacy Kits are a part of the Bedside Art program. You can also participate in Hamsa Hands or other Bedside Art projects.

One of the first and most comprehensive arts in medicine programs nationwide, Gifts of Art brings the world of art & music to Michigan Medicine. During times of stress and illness, the arts have the power to nurture and engage.
