Hospice Caregivers across America work closely in collaboration with the compassionate staff of every Veterans Burial & Cremation Society (VBCS) exclusive provider, before a death, at the time of death and after a death. They appreciate the trust that families and hospice workers place in them as funeral professionals and they 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 (VBCS Providers) 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 these reasons VBCS 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 the professional staff of VBCS Providers is a "natural extension" of hospice care as they work closely together in order to meet the total needs of families.
