Hospice Memorial Service
The Hospice at Home team from Visiting Nurse Services of Connecticut will sponsor its annual Hospice Memorial Service to remember those patients served between April 2014 and March 2015, on Tuesday, May 5, at 7 p.m., at the Trumbull Congregational Church, 3115 Reservoir Ave.

The service is offered as an opportunity for survivors to honor and remember their loved one, as well as visit with hospice team caregivers one more time.

VNS’ Hospice at Home staff provides end-of-life care for many local residents as part of the agency’s complement of hospice home care services. A reception will follow the May 5 service. During the ceremony, a memorial roll will be read and remembrances shared.

Those who prefer their loved one’s name not be read during the service, or anyone with questions about the event, should contact VNS Hospice Program Assistant Dale Janoski at 203-330-5435.
