Honoring Our Veterans
Posted on 02.26.15 in News

Walking through the Jacobetti Home for Veterans is an experience in remembering that we have everything we do have because our men and women in uniform have given everything they had. And many still do.

Lake Superior Hospice does not take those sacrifices lightly. Every military veteran admitted into Lake Superior Hospice, be they at home, in assisted living, at a nursing home or the Jacobetti Veterans Facility receives an 8 x 11 Certificate of Honor and Appreciation for the time and sacrifice given on behalf of their country.   And, if they were married at the time of service the spouse also receives an honorary lapel pin because LSHA recognizes that services to one’s country exacts a price on family, as well.

Lake Superior Hospice is proud to recognize those who have served above and beyond the call of duty in order that the rest of us may continue to serve in other ways. Thank you Veterans and families.

Kind of Care
  • “Every year, more than 1.65 million people living with a life-limiting illness receive care from hospice and palliative care providers in this country,” said J. Donald Schumacher, president and CEO of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization. “These highly-trained professionals don’t only provide quality medical care. They work to make sure patients and families find dignity, respect, and love during life’s most difficult journey.”

    Hospice is more than traditional healthcare. Hospice and palliative care programs provide pain management, symptom control, psychosocial support, and spiritual care to patients and their families when a cure is not possible. Hospice and palliative care combines the highest level of quality medical care with the emotional and spiritual support that families need most when facing the end of life.

    Hospice care is available to people of all ages, with any illness. Hospice professionals and trained volunteers will ask you what’s important and listen to what you say. They make your wishes a priority.

    If you or a loved one is facing a serious or life-limiting illness, the time to find out more about hospice and palliative care is right now.
