Lake Ridge Chapel & Memorial Designers deliver meals to show appreciation to hospice care providers

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

Lake Ridge Chapel has found a way to honor those who put others before themselves.

The funeral home has started a new program call Caring for Those Who Care for Others. It's a way to remind workers they are still appreciated for what they do.

To that end, the funeral home provided lunch for Hospice of Lubbock Thursday. Hospice of Lubbock provides end of life care at no charge to the families.

Care workers say it's a way to ease the burden of serving on the front lines.

"At the end of life - which our patients are at - they want to be at their home, they want to be surrounded by families. Hospice has always provided care in a patient's home and so we feel like we've been able to provide a greater service because we are providing that medical care in a patients home and they can be surrounded by family," Jeremy Brown said.

This is the first of their Caring for Those Who Care for Others campaign. They will continue the campaign by recognizing a different service care provider each month. The funeral home is asking for nominations from the community.

"There are many unsung heroes in our community," said owner, Santos Moreno. "We just want to spread a little light."
