Leave a Gift in Your Will to Broadmead Care

Rudi Hoenson helped us protect programs and services for Canada veterans through a gift in his Will. In loving memory of Rudi, who passed away in 2020.

“I hold my fellow veterans very close to my heart. It doesn’t matter if they are WWII veterans, like me, or served for Canada or our allies. It gives me great pride to know my gift will endure and Canada’s Veterans will continue to receive the best in care long into the future.

I am an ex-prisoner-of-war and I survived the atomic bomb in Nagasaki. I know many of my brothers-in-arms experienced similar difficult situations during WWII. We willingly dedicated our lives to protecting our glorious nation and her people. To do so, we gave up many comforts of home.

I know from personal experience how caring and compassionate every Broadmead Care team member is. I know what a privilege they consider it to care for the men and women who were willing to put themselves in harms way for freedom’s sake. At Veterans Memorial Lodge, they give their utmost every day to create a welcoming environment with the comforts of home for the many men and women who served Canada.

And I know how important it is to secure the future for Veterans yet to come. That is why I left a legacy gift to Broadmead Care which will impact future generations of Canada’s military service men and women.

I believe it is up to each of us to do what we can to help. If we all give a little, together we can do a lot.”
