November is National Hospice Month and November is a month of reflection. We reflect on the never-forgotten legacy of those we have lost in our program, the families we supported, and the amazing people serving our mission. On the topic of service, as a proud Level 4 Partner of the National We Honor Veterans Program, we reflect on serving those who have served us and our country.
Veterans Day, November 11th, is a day of reflection, remembrance and respect. Veterans reflect on their service and sacrifice. They remember fallen friends and memories of the past and present. Badges of honor are proudly symbolized through American flags, red, white, and blue memorabilia, branch of service hats and other wearables, salutes, and even smiles. In fact, Veterans and civilians alike, community leaders, families, and friends gather to show support and appreciation. There is so much pride in reflecting and remembering when it can be done together.
Hospice of Southern Illinois honors veteran employees, veteran volunteers, community veterans, including their families, and veterans who have peacefully passed in hospice care by publicly thanking them for their service and sacrifice. Hospice of Southern Illinois’ interdisciplinary team provides veteran-centric end-of-life care to veterans and their families. Help recognize a few of the dedicated veteran team members and volunteers, family and friends.
