Greater Boston We Honor Veteran Award Recipients Announced
Care Dimensions is pleased to announce that their We Honor Veterans Award and Honorable Mention recipients for 2018 are: Award recipient, Keith Manning of Winthrop and
honorable mention recipients, Margie Labedz of Winchester and Karen Tyler of Wakefield. All three recipients will be lauded at a complimentary awards breakfast on Friday, November 16, at 9:30 a.m. at the Hilton Garden Inn, 450 Totten Pond Road, Waltham.
As a Level Four Partner of the We Honor Veterans program, Care Dimensions has joined together with the U.S. Department of the Veterans’ Affairs and the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization to empower hospice professionals to meet the unique needs of dying Veterans. The program teaches respectful inquiry, compassionate listening and grateful acknowledgement – to comfort patients with a history of military service and possibly physical or psychological trauma.
“Care Dimensions is dedicated to promoting and providing the highest quality end-of-life care for our Veterans and to educating community organizations who also provide services for Veterans,” said Sheryl Meehan, director of volunteer services and chair of the veterans committee at Care Dimensions. Members of the community are invited to attend at no cost. Please RSVP by November 9 to Jane Corrigan, 781-373-6574 or email JCorrigan@CareDimensions.org.
