Hospice & Palliative CareCenter is proud to have been an early participant in the We Honor Veterans; a program of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization in collaboration with the Department of Veterans Affairs. This program focuses on respectful inquiry, compassionate listening and grateful acknowledgment of veterans by recognizing their unique needs and guiding them through their life stories toward a more peaceful ending.
