We are thrilled to welcome Marty and Edie Miller of East Montpelier as Honorary Chairs of our Spring Appeal. Marty and Edie’s relationship with CVHHH dates back 35 years, when they called on our Hospice program for support with the death of their son Jonathan. In the years since, the couple has depended on CVHHH for a range of services, including occupational and physical therapy and routine nursing care.
In their letter to Friends of CVHHH, which you may read here, Marty and Edie describe themselves as “homebodies at heart,” and they say that they feel lucky to have been able to remain at home when they were sidelined physically or needed rehabilitation care. Marty and Edie are particularly excited by the advances that our organization has made in utilizing technology, like telemonitors, to enhance care at home for high-risk individuals and to reduce unnecessary hospitalizations and visits to the emergency department.
In closing their appeal letter, Marty and Edie write: “We agreed to share our family’s story and to serve as Honorary Chairs of the spring campaign because we hope that people can relate to our experiences and reflect on the value and importance of CVHHH’s services in rural Vermont. Home and family are the bedrocks of our community; the presence of a strong CVHHH helps sustain those values.”
