Letter to the editor: Thanks to hospice supporters
Thanks to hospice supporters
On behalf of the staff, volunteers and board of directors of the Bennington Area Visiting Nurse Association & Hospice (BAVNAH) and the Dorset Area Visiting Nurse Association & Hospice (DAVNAH), I would like to thank the city, towns, and residents of Bennington County for your strong and heartfelt support of our comprehensive home care, hospice and community health services.
Thanks to your vote of confidence each March, we have been able to carry out our mission to bring medically-necessary home health and hospice services wherever they are needed, regardless of a client's ability to pay, location of residence, or complexity of health issues.
As federal and state funding for home health continues to decline, your support will become more crucial to ensure that your family, friends and neighbors will be able to receive the medical care they need in the place they call home.
— Ron Cioffi, chief executive officer, VNA & Hospice of the Southwest Region Bennington
