VNA Hospice is proud to be a part of We Honor Veterans, a program developed by the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization in collaboration with the Department of Veterans that addresses the unique needs veterans have when it comes to end-of-life care. As a Level 4 partner of We Honor Veterans, VNA Hospice will implement ongoing veteran-centered education for staff and volunteers to help improve the care that we provide to our local veterans. Veterans will also be honored through a special pinning ceremony to show gratitude to those who have served.
By recognizing the unique needs of our nation’s veterans who are facing a life-limiting illness, VNA is better able to accompany and guide veterans and their families toward a more peaceful ending. And in cases where there might be some specific needs related to the veteran’s military service, combat experience or other traumatic events, VNA will find tools to help support those they are caring for.
