Hospice Presentation

Hospice Presentation

Recently our executive director and co-founder, Ana Pallés Yelen visited a hospice cohort team operating under We Honor Our Veterans Program to discuss the mission of Healing Warriors Program.

She thanked the hospice team for their hard work and dedication to our service members and echoed the sentiments from Optum Health Care Chaplain Dale Eudy that they are very likely the last to thank our service members for their service.

The following summarizes her presentation:

We collect data pre- and post treatment, which we use as part of the client record and fold into the treatment plan – we want to provide care that is most effective for the client. Our practitioner team works a multi-prong approach and will shift if they find that they aren’t achieving optimum results with a particular strategy. This has been very successful for some of our most compromised clients. We have clients who are extremely acute and we work closely with their doctors, many of whom send them to our clinic to support their therapy. We are integrative in our care strategy not alternative.

We include the Service Member’s Partners, Parents, Siblings and Children over 18 in our entitlement of service. We do this because we know that we can exponentially assist the Service Member if we also assist their immediate family. And military service often runs in families. While working with older veterans, there may be other service members in the extended family who would be entitled to services based on their own military service and for whom this would be very helpful.

Quality of life is critical. We provide education and training for self-care and are working on some internship programs for wellness lifestyle. Our primary goal is to ratchet down the pain and the post traumatic stress symptoms – usually anxiety and sleep issues. Once we get that out of the way, we work with our clients on self-help so that they can restore their sense of self-empowerment over how they feel day to day. For our service members, who tend to be so self-sufficient, service-oriented and accomplished, discovering their path back to who they are is key. HWP simply offers a way to make their individual path more visible by alleviating the obstacle and “noise” of pain and PTS.

Rollin’ with the Troops

Rollin’ with the Troops

Stephanie & flagWe had a good time at Rollin’ with the Troops last weekend in Lakewood. Sadly, the weather turned ugly early and that limited the number of visitors who stayed for the whole event, but we are happy for all the work Dani and Brad Hammond did to help benefit Healing Warriors Program.

The Hammonds started Rollin’ With the Troops three years ago, even before Healing Warriors Program was founded. They wanted to do something to recognize the hard work and sacrifices of our service members, and to benefit veterans with “invisible wounds” at the same time.

Guys & Gals“Our main focus is to advocate for invisible wounds, because that is where our hardest issues lie and that is where our heart lies,” Dani said.

“We have found the guys with invisible wounds don’t get nearly as much attention as they need,” she said.

Dani, whose husband Brad was an infantry soldier deployed to Iraq during Operation Iraqi Freedom, said they also advocate for the caregiver taking care of these veterans. It’s the couple’s desire to help the caregiver that allowed Healing Warriors Program to benefit from this fun and educational annual event for the second year.

Cammie in PinzgauerDani and Brad also share our goals and desires to open a new clinic in the Lakewood area and that’s why they will continue to be friends to Healing Warriors Program.

“We are working with Healing Warriors Program because we are trying to help them get a new clinic in Lakewood,” Dani said. “We think it is a gateway to the Bailey-Conifer area and the Springs where many of the veterans are hanging out.”

We also want to thank Mile-High Traffic Control, Tokyo Joes, all the pinup gils and other sponsors for their help with the event.

 

Next week, Healing Warriors Program is back up in Fort Collins at The Lodge – Sasquatch Kitchen Grand Opening Event. Join us at your favorite new watering hole and have a chance to win prizes, food, & beverages. A portion of proceeds from this event benefits Healing Warriors Program.

Ever wonder what an acupuncture session at the Healing Warriors Program clinic might look like? Ever wonder what therapies like acupuncture can do to help various health issues?

Sarah Jane Kyle, renown reporter from The Coloradoan, delves into the therapy sessions provided at the Healing Warriors Program clinic for our Veterans with her interview in The Coloradoan on Friday, March 21st.

In the Coloradoan video segment, Abbye Silverstein, one of three Healing Warriors Program clinic acupuncturists, delivers an acupuncture treatment for United States Marine Corps Veteran David Sykes.

Mr. Sykes was in chronic pain and experiencing the effects of post traumatic stress. His acupuncture sessions have resulted in a release of pain and an overall improvement of symptoms.
