Queen City Hospice’s Legacy Program is offered for the purpose of affirming and honoring the life an individual has lived. Upon admission to Queen City Hospice, each patient in our care, and their family, is offered the opportunity to create a beautiful keepsake photo book.

The first photo book is provided to the family as a gift from Queen City Hospice, free of charge.
