We Honor Veterans Program

Hospice & Palliative Care is a proud partner of We Honor Veterans, a national project developed by the National Hospice & Palliative Care Organization in collaboration with the Department of Veterans Affairs.

According to the program, one in four dying Americans is a veteran. These men and women often carry experiences from their military service that present unique challenges at the end of life.

The We Honor Veterans project gives our Hospice & Palliative Care staff the tools to best meet those unique challenges. Special skills include:

  • Counseling for physical or psychological trauma
  • Expert symptom management
  • Knowledge of veteran benefits and VA organizations
  • Experience with service recognition ceremonies
  • Access to veteran-to-veteran volunteer programs
  • Compassionate listening
  • Grateful acknowledgements and recognition of service that will not be forgotten
