As we celebrate the 4th of July Front Range Hospice asks that you pause to recognize the sacrifice from the millions of veterans in our Armed Forces. Since the Declaration of Independence was signed more than 200 years ago on July 4, 1776, our country has seen multiple wars – and called upon its sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, mothers and fathers to serve many times.
As our veterans age, they sometimes require special assistance beyond the typical senior citizen. Veterans may have physical wounds from battle injuries, or psychological wounds from being part of a war.
Even without service-specific wounds, veterans face the same diseases that we all do. World War II veterans are now all over 70, and many have cancer, dementia, chronic heart failure and other chronic or end of life diseases.
Like the rest of us, veterans need hospice care to guide them and their family through the end-of-life journey. These men and women deserve the best care available, and we are honored to serve them in their time of need.
It is never too late to honor and give a Veteran a hero’s welcome home. Front Range Hospice staff work hard to provide the last opportunity for Veterans to feel that their service was not in vain, and that they are appreciated. We do this with simple acts of gratitude at the end-of-life to make up for a lack of appreciation or recognition during the Veteran’s lifetime, especially for those Veterans who were never welcomed home or thanked for their service. Front Range Hospice will always, honor and recognize the Veterans we serve by providing;
Front Range Hospices asks that this 4th of July, stop and say THANK YOU to all of the service men and women who have made and continue to make the 4th of July possible. Without their sacrifice we wouldn’t be able to enjoy a day filled with family and friends or an evening filled with awesome fireworks.
