Commemorative Butterfly Release 2019

In July each year, families and friends come together to honor their loved ones during our Annual Butterfly Release. Taking place at our Germantown Preceptor Health Care courtyard, dozens of beautiful butterflies are awakened and released to commemorate the spirit and strength of those who passed.

Sarah Martel, Preceptor Executive Director, welcomed families on July 24, 2019. Chaplain Eric Boon opened the ceremony with a prayer. Luke Edgewood and Tom Wood presented a moving rendition of Amazing Grace. Jessica Gray then invited families to share memories of their loved ones.

Linda Davis shared a poem, “An Angel Like the Butterfly”, written by Mae Stein. The reading of the names of our loved ones lost by Kathy Weston, Director of Hospice Operations, followed. Then it was time to release the butterflies.

The ceremony ended with the song “Hymn of Promise”. The song opens: “In the bulb there is a flower; in the seed, an apple tree. In cocoons, a hidden promise; butterflies will soon be free!”

It is an honor and privilege to be with families and patients as they make the journey of death and dying. Thank you for trusting us. Thank you for being with us as we remember those lost during the last year.

Taking Care of the Caregiver

Caring for a loved one can be very wearing on the caregiver. To better take care of others, you must first take care of yourself. Take a break at this coffee hour and join others who support a senior. Learn how to get the compassionate, supportive resources you need. You may just find that life got a little easier.

There will be an activity provided on-site so feel free to bring your loved one with you.
