As Level 5 We Honor Veterans partners, Center for Hospice Care and Hospice Foundation are dedicated to making sure veterans are aware of the benefits they are eligible for at the end of life. Part of this effort includes pairing our veteran patients with volunteers who are also veterans.
CHC recently hosted a Vet-to-Vet Café for these veteran volunteers, giving them an opportunity to share their experiences and learn from one another. Veteran patients have a unique set of needs, and it is vital to have volunteers with similar experiences who can best understand these needs. These gatherings expand these volunteers’ toolkits for relating to their fellow veterans as they face end of life.
Donations to CHC's We Honor Veterans program helps with training veteran volunteers, pinning ceremonies, and even Honor Flights to Washington D.C. when appropriate.
