Angels Among Us 2019

The Hospice and Bereavement teams of VNA Health, formerly Visiting Nurse & Hospice Care, were pleased to offer three intimate and heartwarming remembrance services in Santa Barbara and Buellton this holiday season. Hundreds of angels were hung on beautifully lit trees to remember and honor their legacy, and guests enjoyed a touching, inclusive service, which featured thoughtful melodies by Stefana Dadas and Jeanne Martin of the VNA Health Music Therapy program, and a tribute to the Conception Boat Fire by local singer/songwriter, David Segall. Reflections presented by VNA Health Hospice Chaplains and staff aided all guests in their healing through the holiday season.

A big thank you to The Garden Club of Santa Barbara for adorning the room with stunning arrangements to create a warm, holiday feel!
