The Veteran’s Recognition program recognizes the sacrifices these men and women have made and believe we owe a debt of gratitude for the security they have provided by defending our nation.
We also understand the traumatic effects war can have on Veterans and the feelings it can produce like anxiety, depression, reoccurring anger, self-blame, guilt, compulsive or aggressive behavior, and sleep disorders. This is known as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Some are affected so strongly that they are unable to live normal lives; and some may not experience any symptoms until they approach the end of life.
To better care for these patients, the ExpectCare staff and volunteers are educated and trained in caring for Veterans at the end of life and the effects of PTSD.
Additionally, we have developed a Veteran Recognition Program to acknowledge our Veteran patients by providing a certificate and honorary presentation. In addition, our volunteers create Life Journals of their experiences to share with their families.
