Memorial Garden

The memorial garden at Rock River Hospice & Home provides a serene, calming area for visiting families, guests of patients and the public to visit. Family members and friends have over the years donated several of the items you will find in the garden – benches, pergola, gazebo, chairs, picnic table, boulders and more. The patients utilizing our in-patient facility can easily access the garden either by chair or even in their bed, and each patient room has a beautiful view of the garden.

Memorial Bricks

Building a Lasting Memorial

For over 38 years, generous community support has enabled Rock River Hospice & Home (formerly Hospice of the Rock River Valley) to provide comprehensive, compassionate care to the communities we serve. Many in our community have expressed a desire to contribute to our organization in a way that also commemorates or honors a family member, friend or organization. The Brick Walk, in the Memorial Garden at the Hospice Home in Sterling, fulfills this wish and provides many people with a beautiful setting for peace and reflection. For our patients, family members and other visitors it is a quiet reminder of those who have left an indelible imprint in their lives. Your Gift Directly Supports the Memorial Garden at the Hospice Home By purchasing an engraved brick, you create a lasting memory that honors a loved one, organization or event and supports the Memorial Garden at Rock River Hospice & Home. 

Each Brick is a Story … Each Step is a Memory
