To the Editor:

New Milford Visiting Nurse & Hospice is very pleased to be celebrating the 30th anniversary of our hospice program this year.

Throughout the last three decades, we have been privileged to serve thousands of terminally ill people and their caregivers and family members.

While embracing state of the art techniques in pain management and complementary services such as massage, we have remained true to our mission of providing the best in hospice nursing care.

Our program uses an interdisciplinary team approach, and our goal is to provide the best quality of life during this challenging time.

We also provide an extensive array of bereavement services to the community at large, including adult groups, a child/parent group, our long-running Camp Jonathan for bereaved children, and now a Widow and Widowers group.

November is National Hospice Month.

This year, we will be holding our 30th annual interfaith remembrance service at the First Congregational Church on the Village Green on Nov. 24 at 4 p.m., followed by the lighting of the Tree of Life and a reception at the Richmond Citizen Center.

We invite everyone to join us at this very special event.

If you would like the name of your deceased loved one read during the service, please call us at 860-354-2216.

We look forward to seeing you there.

We also look forward to continuing to provide the very best in hospice services to our community.
