We Honor Veterans

Lutheran Hospice is proud to be a level four We Honor Veterans provider which is the highest recognition a hospice provider can achieve.

We Honor Veterans is a program created by the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO) in collaboration with the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). They work with hospices, state hospice organizations, Hospice-Veteran Partnerships, and VA facilities to join a pioneering program focused on respectful inquiry, compassionate listening, and grateful acknowledgment. This is driven by recognizing the unique needs of America's veterans and their families. Community providers, in partnership with VA staff, assist these organizations to learn how to accompany and guide veterans through their life stories toward a more peaceful ending.
