Volunteer Veterans Honor Patients Who are Veterans
Click here to listen to Manny Carcell, veteran and Treasure Coast Hospice volunteers, in a recent radio interview about how he honors our patients who are veterans in the Veterans Visiting Veterans program..
Volunteers like Manny show the veterans that they are appreciated by presenting a pin and a certificate of appreciation in a short ceremony. The ceremony often gets the patient to reminiscing about his or her service, and Manny's is an understanding ear because he's been there himself.
"I enjoy sitting with people from that era, that went through World War II," Manny says.
The radio program was broadcast on WSTU, AM1450, on March 16.
