The Hospice Benefit for Veterans

CompassionCare Hospice is a proud We Honor Veterans participant in the Las Vegas and Reno communities.

Honoring Veterans at CompassionCare Hospice

Few people would argue that Veterans deserve the utmost respect and care as they go through life. As Veterans age, they often need specialized care that’s difficult to find. For families, it’s a challenge to leave their loved one in the hands of others, especially when they have specific needs associated with their past military service. When you’re looking for premier end-of-life care for a Veteran you love, look no further than CompassionCare Hospice. We are proud to offer an exceptional We Honor Veterans Program, as our personal thank you to the heroes who have so bravely defended our country.

CompassionCare Hospice Pinning Ceremony

CompassionCare Hospice strives to honor each Veteran in meaningful ways. All Veterans receiving hospice services are offered the opportunity to be recognized with a custom Pinning Ceremony”, showcasing the branch specific certificate of recognition, lapel pin, and patriotic memorabilia. Staff, family, and friends are invited to join us to honor our Veterans’ service.

Veteran-2-Veteran Volunteers

Our Veteran-2-Veteran Volunteer Program pairs a Veteran Volunteer with a Veteran hospice patient. CompassionCare Veteran Volunteers have the unique ability to relate and connect with the patient, therefore creating an environment where life review and spiritual healing may occur.

Why are Veteran Volunteers important?

Veterans share a common code of conduct. Veteran Volunteers honor this tradition and support life review and healing through this process.
Each Veteran is offered a Veteran-centric service upon admission.
 
Veteran Volunteers may assist the patient and family by:
 
  • Providing companionship by participating in life review
  • Assisting with tasks such as writing letters or getting in touch with loved ones
  • Participating in pinning ceremonies
  • Assisting with replacing lost metals of honor
  • Assisting with VA questions

Please note: Veteran volunteers do not perform any hands-on care for the patient.
