TILTON, NH: Live Free Home Health Care LLC, a family-owned and operated home health care agency that provides services in the Lakes Region and Central New Hampshire, recently made a $500.00 donation to the New Hampshire Veterans Home (NHVH) Resident Benefit Christmas Fund. Jason M. Harvey is the Owner and Co-Administrator of Live Free Home Health Care in Bristol, NH and comes from a family which understands and honors military service. “Both my parents served in the US Air Force,” he explains. “My Dad, Roland, served for 27 years and my mom, Allene, served for sixteen. My grandparents and my mom’s nephews also served in the military. We really appreciate the sacrifices of military service and this is just our small way of saying ‘Thank you’ to the residents of the Veterans Home.”

Jason Harvey’s father, Roland Harvey, who was not present for the photo, served for twentyseven years in the US Air Force. Jason said, “Our family has a great commitment to veterans.” When NHVH residents make their Christmas Wish Lists, donations from the New Hampshire Veterans Home Resident Benefit Fund help staff make those wishes come true. Lisa Punderson, Volunteer Coordinator, explains, “The residents don’t ask for much—and they are so grateful when they receive something they had hoped for. It’s really rewarding to see donations like this do so much good.” Barry E. Conway, NHVH Commandant, is also grateful for the donation. “It’s great to have community support for special projects like this,” he said. “And we applaud home health care agencies for the work they do in supporting families as part of the continuum of care.”

Live Free Home Health Care provides services needed to enable individuals to remain in their own homes safely and independently. The agency offers a wide range of services, from companion care and assistance with activities of daily living to skilled nursing. All care is supervised and updated by a registered nurse, who is specially trained to watch for new or changing health issues.

Established in Tilton in 1890 as the Soldier’s Home for Civil War Veterans, the New Hampshire Veterans Home was one of just four New Hampshire nursing homes to win the first Quality of Life Award from the New Hampshire Department of Health & Human Services (DHHS) in 2007. NHVH was recognized again in 2009 by DHHS for its continuing commitment to nursing home culture change and quality of life. The NHVH campus is home to 200 men and women who have served their country and fellow New Hampshire citizens. The only long-term care facility in the Granite State that is dedicated exclusively to veterans, NHVH’s mission is to provide high quality, professional long-term care services to the Granite State’s elderly and disabled veterans.
