Heidi's Helping Hands

In November 2019, the Taylor Family's lives were changed forever when mother, wife, and friend, Heidi Taylor, was transferred to the Plainview Hospital Intensive Care unit. When the family made the decision to withdraw life support, the team at Plainview Hospital knew that they needed to further support her two young children (10 and 12 years old) who were grieving the loss of their mother.

Our team members supported the Taylor family with help from Child Life Specialists from Cohen Children's. Heidi's children, Zoey and Aiden, made special plaster of paris hand molds of them holding their mother's hand, fingerprints, etc. These therapeutic interventions made a lasting impression on the Taylor family. Shortly after their mom's passing, the family reached out to set up a program that will allow other families to have the same creative materials, and more, to help in their grieving process. These brave children held fundraisers in their schools and community to fund the program; "Heidi's Helping Hands". Since its inception, and all throughout the COVID pandemic, we have provided countless families with beautiful legacy items such as heart locket necklaces with patients' fingerprints, ekg keepsakes, and hand molds, for family members. We are forever grateful for the Taylor Family and are proud to continue Heidi's legacy in this special way.
