The VNA of Care New England Hospice Care Program will hold its annual spring hospice memorial at the Warwick Country Club, 394 Narragansett Bay Avenue, Warwick, RI 02889, at 6 p.m. on Tuesday May 12, 2015. This celebration of life will include candlelight, music, and a sharing of memories through photographs and stories for individuals who have lost loved ones, as a tribute to them.
Photos of a loved one(s) are encouraged to be submitted for the slide show of the evening, even if you are unable to attend the event. Photos, along with the name of the individual(s) pictured, may be sent electronically to email@example.com, or mailed to Chris Carpenter, director of Hospice and Palliative Care, 51 Health Lane, Warwick, RI 02886, or dropped off at the VNA office, located at the same address, prior to April 20. Hard copy photos will be returned after the remembrance.
"The hospice memorial is a wonderful, warm and caring way to pay tribute to lost loved ones, and is also important in bringing the community together for a great evening of remembrance," said Nancy Roberts, president of VNA Care New England. "We focus strongly on the care and comfort of our patients and their families and this event is a rewarding and meaningful way for us to give back."
Please RSVP by April 30, by calling 401-921-7626 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Music will be provided by the Ocean State Women's Choir, and by the granddaughter of a former patient. Refreshments will be served following the service.
Hospice Care at VNA of Care New England includes an expert team of nurses, home health aides, social workers, a chaplain, physician, pharmacists and volunteers. Hospice is the most appropriate treatment option when an individual has made the decision to discontinue curative treatment and when expert symptom management that may include physical, emotional and spiritual support becomes the goal for someone with a life-limiting condition. Care can be provided wherever the patient currently resides whether it be at home, a nursing home, assisted living, or a residential care facility. The care provided focuses not only on the patient but their family as well. For more information, please visit www.vnacarenewengland.org.
