We Honor Veterans
AlēvCare™ Hospice is pleased to partner with the US Department of Veteran Affairs through the We Honor Veterans program. This program is a project of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO) and the US Department of Veteran Affairs. It was launched in October 2010 to improve the care veterans receive through hospice and palliative care providers that are accepted into and meet/maintain the requirements of the We Honor Veterans program.
We Honor Veterans is an orientation in the Hospice Philosophy that includes Veteran-specific education that assists us in our commitment to provide compassionate care to terminally ill veterans and their families through respectful inquiry, compassionate listening and grateful acknowledgment. Because of their unique and often traumatic experiences during their service, veterans frequently have special needs at the end of life. The emotional and spiritual support that hospice provides can be especially meaningful to those who so selflessly served our great country. Unfortunately, most veterans do not know that hospice support can begin months before death. 1 out of every 4 dying Americans is a veteran and many of them are Medicare beneficiaries that are unaware of the Medicare hospice benefit.
AlēvCare™ Hospice holds a special understanding and desire to ensure that the men and women who have given so selflessly receive the support and compassionate care they deserve.
