VERO BEACH, Fla., Nov. 20, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Veterans Day was a day of significance at Watercrest Santa Rosa Beach Assisted Living and Memory Care as the Watercrest team joined with community partners to ensure their resident veterans received well-deserved respect and appreciation for their military service.
Emerald Coast Hospice led a patriotic ceremony to a room filled with residents, family and friends at Watercrest Santa Rosa Beach in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida. The event began with the reading of the poem, "I am a Veteran" by Andrea C. Brett, which includes the verse, 'And when Old Glory waves/ I stand proud, I stand tall/ I helped keep her flying over you, over all."
Each veteran was individually recognized and presented with a patriotic gift, boutonniere and certificate of honor noting their branch of service and reading, "We pay special tribute to you for your military service to America and for advancing the universal hope of freedom and liberty for all."
The Veterans Day community celebration is an aspect of Watercrest CARES, a company-wide movement by Watercrest Senior Living Group encompassing their common unity initiatives such as Connectivity. Watercrest is committed to supporting residents in staying connected in meaningful ways and inspiring a sense of community at each location.
"While honoring our seniors on a daily basis is part of our Watercrest culture, it is a unique honor to dedicate this day to celebrating the lives of our military heroes for their selfless dedication to our country," says Kim Haddon, Executive Director of Watercrest Santa Rosa Beach.
