Veterans & Family Memorial Care (VFMC) funeral home providers appreciate the trust that families and hospice workers place in us and we constantly strive to be deserving of that trust. At no time will family members be without support. The strong attachments and trust developed in one supportive environment (hospice) are shared and transferred to another (VFMC funeral home provider) as the family moves through the process of dying, death and bereavement.
Hospice Care includes care of the patient and family prior to the time of death, at the time of death, and care of the family during the bereavement period. For this reason VFMC funeral home providers have become an integral part of hospice care by bridging the gap between the time of death and bereavement care. When you consider the philosophy of hospice and funeral service, it is clear why the continuum of care provided by our professional staff is a "natural extension" of hospice care. VFMC funeral home providers and hospice caregivers work closely together in order to meet the total needs of families. With greater understanding of each others care, areas of expertise and resources, hospice workers and our caring staff work together to plan a course which makes for a more natural transition of care at the time of death and in caring for the survivors in the months following the death.
Over the last 30 years I have personally seen thousands of families through one of life's most stressful situations, the loss of a loved one. What I've learned from my decades of experience is this...what matters most to those who are dealing with a death is guidance and understanding. Therefore I have selected funeral homes across America whose promise to their community is radically different from the others. They pledge to uphold the highest level of ethical business standards and believe that they have a unique responsibility to honor the dignity of the deceased, to aid and counsel the family in time of grief, and to encourage remembrance with each family within its own traditions, culture and financial means.
