AccentCare’s Veteran Leadership Inspires Specialized Veterans Programs

AccentCare, managed by Veteran leadership, is proud to serve all patients and clients, including those who have served our nation.

“We thank Veterans everywhere for ensuring our freedom and are humbled every day by the honor to serve them and to meet their particular home healthcare needs,” said AccentCare CEO Steve Rodgers, who was a Special Forces Medic in the U.S. Army.

AccentCare offers a number of programs across the full continuum of home care, many of which address the unique needs of Veterans. These programs reflect dedication to service, help to ensure independence, and preservation of dignity in the delivery and design of specialized care.

For some Veterans, post-acute care is necessary for them to live independently. Loss of physical functionality or psychological issues often requires in-home healthcare. AccentCare not only offers home-based skilled care including nursing and rehabilitative therapies, it also provides skilled behavioral healthcare including their proprietary RightPath program for Late Life Depression. In addition, AccentCare’s personal care services division equips Care Partner attendants with special training to improve interactions with clients suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

“As a Field Artillery Officer in the U.S. Army, I worked to support soldiers in military operations and as a leader at AccentCare, I proudly support our Mission to deliver consistently exceptional care,” said Scott Roberts, Vice President of Operations, Personal Care Services. “It is a privilege to serve all clients, including those who serve, or have served, our country. Giving them the support they need in order to have independence at home, is a very fulfilling experience for our Care Partner attendants.”

Of course, maintaining dignity at the end of life is a critical part of healthcare for all patients. However, for Veterans, distinct circumstances should be addressed. Through AccentCare’s partnership with We Honor Veterans, a program belonging to the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization and Department of Veterans Affairs, the company provides educational tools and resources uniquely designed for Veterans, including special procedures for transitioning Veterans across venues of care, including VA medical centers, Veteran-specific outreach presentations, and Veteran-to-Veteran volunteers. The latter matches volunteers who have served in the military with hospice patients who have also served. Their common backgrounds create special bonds that are especially valued by patients reviewing their military memories near the end of life.

Chris Mitchell, Vice President and General Manager, Hospice, who served as a Lieutenant Colonel in the U.S. Army said, “We are so proud of our programs, local events, and volunteer work that show respect for Veterans by offering quality care that respects their dignity.”

AccentCare develops individualized plans of care for each person and family it serves, including some that are uniquely crafted for Veteran patients and clients.

“The men and women of America’s military dedicate themselves to our freedom, and it’s an honor to show them our dedication to their service, independence, and dignity,” said AccentCare’s Dan Buning, Chief Operating Officer, West Point graduate and 20-year officer in the U.S. Army.
