Become A Great Lakes Caring Hospice Volunteer For Veterans
JACKSON, Mich., Oct. 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Great Lakes Caring Hospice, one of the largest and most trusted health care providers in the Midwest, is looking for volunteers to help with American Veteran patients in Michigan, Indiana and Ohio.
"It may surprise many people to learn that 25 percent of those who die every year in the U.S. are veterans. To help provide care and support that reflect the important contributions made by these men and women, Great Lakes Caring Hospice has become a national partner of We Honor Veterans, a pioneering campaign developed by the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization and The United States Department of Veterans Affairs," said Great Lakes Caring CEO William Deary.
"As a We Honor Veterans Partner, Great Lakes Caring Hospice will be implementing ongoing Veteran-centered education for our staff and volunteers to help improve the quality of life for the veterans they proudly serve. Our nation is seeing many of the veterans who served in World War II and the Korean War pass away -- and the number of deaths of Vietnam Veterans is beginning to rise," added Deary whose father and mother were both United States Navy Veterans.
