On Wednesday, June 14, 2017, UR Medicine Home Care and the Boy Scouts from Troop 240 out of Greece, NY raised a new American flag in honor of Flag Day at our Webster office.
As per a request from one of our employees, we replaced the old flag with a brand new one to honor Flag Day. We had several Eagle Scouts from Troop 240 carrying out the formal process of replacing the flag. Employees, local community members, and veterans gathered as UR Medicine Home Care is part of the We Honor Veterans program, which invites hospices, state hospice organizations, Hospice-Veteran Partnerships and VA facilities to be part of a program that focuses on respectful inquiry, compassionate listening and grateful acknowledgment. By recognizing the unique needs of America’s veterans and their families, community providers, in partnership with VA staff, will learn how to accompany and guide them through their life stories toward a more peaceful ending.
