As we mark Memorial Day this year, we are a country involved in conflicts abroad. The ongoing fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan continues to take a toll on our nation. Serious injuries and the untimely deaths of our brave service men and women remind us that life is precious.
Hospice and palliative care professionals who help families cope with loss on a daily basis share ideas on how to honor this sacrifice on Memorial Day and every day:
Your community hospice can be a source of information on grief and bereavement. Caring Connections, a program of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization, also offers information on grief at www.caringinfo.org or by calling the HelpLine at 1-800-658-8898.
