I worked at VAMC full time for 8 years, then 1 year on call. I worked in the nursing home/rehabilitation/palliative care. It was a honor to serve these men and women. I took care of the vbeterans after they came home from their tour of duty. My patients were of various ages.
The veterans I took care of needed occupation or physical therapy. Some were there to die.
Many were able to to return home after their therapy.
Some were diabetics who needed help learning to control their blood sugar.
I don't consider myself a unsung hero.
