The Quad County Hospice “No Veteran Dies Alone” program recently received a four-star rating, making it one of only four hospice programs in Illinois and Indiana to receive the honor. Some of the accomplishments achieved to earn the honor include providing services for veterans and spreading the word about the program.
Rachel Springate is the Hospice Volunteer Coordinator with Quad County Hospice. She says Quad County wants to provide a type of care for these veterans on hospice that only fellow veterans can provide.
Quad County also provides these veterans with a pinning ceremony, which Springate says is a way for them to show their gratitude to these veterans for their service to our country.
Springate, along with Quad County Director Carol Chandler appeared as guests on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show.
