Time of Remembrance Video

Again this year, our annual Time of Remembrance comes in the form of a video to remember and honor the lives of individuals in our hospice program and community who have died over the past year. Members of our hospice team have worked together to record readings, thoughts, art and music to bring comfort to you and to honor the memory of the ones you love and miss.

 ~ Hospice Lights ~ 

As part of Hospice Month 2022, we have slowly illuminated the lights on the front of the Lake Sunapee VNA building at 107 Newport Road in New London to reflect the growing support for hospice care and as a symbol of the bright light of every life. They are now fully illuminated! Enjoy the glow…and please consider making a donation to the LSRVNA Hospice Program. Your giving spirit helps to sustain compassionate, dignified, meaningful end of life care.

With gratitude for our 2022 Hospice Lights givers!

Many family and community members donate to our Hospice Program throughout the year, often with donations in memory of loved ones. During National Hospice Month in November, however, some supporters choose to specify a gift to our special “Hospice Lights” fundraiser. These givers help us offer additional resources that further enhance meaningful, compassionate end of life care:

Hospice Reflections


Spiritual Care Counselors play an important role in our team approach to caring for hospice patients and their caregivers and families. In hospice, spirituality is sometimes defined as the way in which we seek and express meaning, purpose, connectedness and hope. For some, this may involve religious support. For others, it may be as simple as sharing and reflecting on the things that bring meaning to that person’s life. Learn more about our spiritual care services during this short interview with Cinnamon Blomquist, Spiritual Care Coordinator, at https://ycnnow.com/2022/11/10/spiritual-care-coordinator-for-the-lake-sunapee-region-hospice

Wendy Hubbard

“As a hospice nurse, I feel honored to be at my patient’s bedside providing that human touch as their life's journey comes to a close.”

Wendy Hubbard, RN

Rebecca Lacasse

“I was drawn to hospice and palliative care because I can treat the whole person and not just the disease. Through all my schooling and experience, to providing hospice care for my grandparents in my family’s home, I was definitely drawn to this role.”

Rebecca Lacasse, DNP, APRN, Hospice & Palliative Care Nurse Practitioner

Michelle Nichols LNA

“It’s a true privilege to be a part of the hospice team. I feel it’s a very intimate moment, with not just the client, but also the family. Each family that I have interacted with has touched my heart in some way. They say we bring light to them; they also bring light to me in so many ways.”

Michelle Nichols, LNA, HHA

Steve and Loa Winter

Steve and Loa Winter moved to New Hampshire from California in the late 1970’s and were instrumental in the introduction of hospice care to Lake Sunapee VNA and the region. We invite you to enjoy their reflections as they share this history about our hospice program.
