Creating Memories for Everyone in the Family

One of the features of Avow Hospice’s four-star “We Honor Veterans” programs is the presentation of a military insignia-embroidered blanket to veteran patients. The “Salute” ceremonies, where the blankets and commemorative certificates are presented, are attended by Avow staff members and Avow volunteers who have also served our country.

In this photo, Avow Hospice volunteer and staff member veterans (from left to right: Rick LoCastro, Air Force; Carolyn Monteverde, Army; Henry Braga, Air National Guard and Air Force; John “Jack” Fulmer III, Marine Corps; and Scott McDonald, Army.) honor WWII veteran and Normandy Campaign survivor, Roger Rogers, Army, during a Salute ceremony. Mr. Rogers is the caregiver for an Avow patient, but is experiencing memory problems. The Avow team made special plans to hold the ceremony while both Mr. Rogers and the patient could enjoy and remember it.
