All elected officials are concerned about the welfare of our nation’s veterans, and the We Honor Veterans program can be an effective way to involve Members of Congress in discussions about hospice care centered around vets.
By recognizing the unique needs of America’s veterans and their families, hospice providers can learn how to accompany and guide these heroes toward a more peaceful ending. We Honor Veterans, a program of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization in collaboration with the Department of Veterans Affairs, invites hospice and palliative care providers, state hospice organizations, Hospice-Veteran Partnerships and VA facilities to join this pioneering program focused on respectful inquiry, compassionate listening and grateful acknowledgment.
