We Honor Veterans
To help provide care and support that reflect the important contributions made by military Veterans, Hospice Services of Lake County is a national partner of We Honor Veterans, a pioneering campaign developed by the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization in collaboration with the Department of Veterans Affairs.
By recognizing the unique needs of our nation’s Veterans who are facing a life-limiting illness, our hospice organization is able to accompany and guide Veterans and their families toward a more peaceful ending. And in cases where there might be some specific needs related to the Veteran’s military service, combat experience, or other traumatic events, our care team will find tools to help support those they are caring for.
The resources of We Honor Veterans focus on respectful inquiry, compassionate listening and grateful acknowledgement, coupled with Veteran-centric education of healthcare staff caring for Veterans.
