Cardinal Hospice Care Partners with the We Honor Veteran’s Program
Our partnership with We Honor Veterans
Cardinal Hospice Care is pleased to announce we are recognized as a Hospice-Veteran Partner with the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO) We Honor Veterans (WHV) Program (through the department of Veterans Affairs). The purpose of our partnership is to improve the experience of end-of-life care for veterans and their families we serve in our surrounding communities.
Through the program, our team has received critical training and tools to help:
– Increase awareness & knowledge about veterans’ end-of-life care needs and options
– Improve veterans’ access to hospice and palliative care across all sites and levels of care
– Provide veteran-centered education to better serve veterans and their families
“We thank Cardinal Hospice Care for partnering in the We Honor Veterans program,” said NHPCO President & CEO Edo Banach. “We Honor Veterans partners are committed to providing quality Veteran-centric care to the Veteran patients they serve. They understand how a Veteran’s military service, combat experience or other traumatic events, could impact their end-of-life experience.”
