Good Samaritan Hospice Hosts an Open House for Veterans Honoring those who have served in our military
Good Samaritan Hospice is hosting an Open House to honor Veterans in our area on Wednesday, November 7 from 1-3 p.m. Both the Roanoke and New River Valley offices will welcome veterans and their families with a program recognizing the sacrifices they’ve made for our country.
“Good Sam has spent the last couple of years making a concerted effort to fully focus on our veterans and their specific needs at end-of-life,” explains Cindy Hagerman, Director of Community Relations at Good Sam. “We are following the lead of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization in dedicating time, energy and resources to learning what truly matters to veterans and their families, especially in the sacred, final chapter of life.”
Hospice professionals across the country focus on a single purpose: to provide comfort and support at the end of life. The National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization has established a pioneering program designed to learn how to specifically serve Veterans through the challenges they may be facing from illness, isolation or traumatic life experience. Good Sam is committed to the “We Honor Veterans” program (www.wehonorveterans.org).
