Through We Honor Veterans, Brookhaven Hospice offers a Vet-to-Vet Volunteer program where trained hospice volunteers, who are also Veterans, are matched with patients who are Veterans.
The Vet-to-Vet Volunteer connection is a special bond between two individuals who know firsthand the impact of serving our country. Veteran volunteers have the unique ability to relate and connect with each patient thereby creating an environment where life review and healing may occur.
Veteran volunteer activities may include respite care, companionship care, and taking part in a pinning ceremony. If you are a Veteran or are actively serving you can become a Vet-to-Vet Volunteer.
VETERAN PINNING CEREMONY
A Veteran Pinning Ceremony is an optional benefit for Veteran patients on VNA Health hospice care. It provides an opportunity to publicly acknowledge the military service and sacrifices made by the Veteran and his/her family. The ceremony gives the Veteran a chance to share part of his/ her story. By doing so, a sense of meaning and purpose can be gained by the Veteran.
The ceremony is relatively brief and can be done at the bedside or in another location on a date and time arranged with the Veteran and family. During the ceremony, a personalized certificate and American flag pin are presented by one of our Vet-to-Vet Volunteers. If the Veteran or family prefers to just receive the certificate and pin without a ceremony, this is an available option.
About Brookhaven Hospice
2 Bedford Farms Drive, Suite 105, Bedford, NH 03110, US
Brookhaven Hospice provides patients and families with exceptional hospice care, and facilitates a meaningful end of life experience. With deep compassion and skill, we care for people living with serious illnesses, the dying and those who care for them.
Hospice is a passion - we are driven to provide compassionate, responsible, and timely hospice services, always leading with dignity. Brookhaven Hospice was founded by a group of nursing home owners and operators to provide additional, specialized end-of-life resources to the residents residing in their facilities. Over time Brookhaven expanded to serve other facilities and the community at large.
Our butterfly logo symbolizes the need to accept the dramatic changes that affect our lives - to not only accept but also embrace the natural evolution of our bodies. Their transformation reminds us of the work we do on this earth, the preparation we undergo and the eventual transformation of our own spirit and soul. Brookhaven’s butterfly beckons us to keep our faith through the natural transitions in our lives - the need to recognize life’s patterns and prepare for the stages that affect us all.
