We Honor Veterans
Epic Care’s Veterans Program
Epic Care Health honors those who have served us and makes it a mission to provide specialized emotional support to veterans who enter hospice. Military service leaves mental and physical scars that need to be tended to in order to enjoy the final stages of life.
Epic Care Health has the resources to give veteran patients the support they deserve so they may find peace in the time they have left.
Epic Care Health is proud to offer the We Honor Veterans Program through the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO) and VA (Department of Veterans Affairs). The We Honor Veterans Program recognizes the special needs of veterans in their final days and allows hospices to best cater to their veteran patients. The NHPCO and VA collaborated to create this program which focuses on respect and compassion, two of Epic Care Health’s values.
The goal of the We Honor Veterans Program is to properly care for and honor those who have served us as they approach the end of their life and focuses on respectful inquiry, compassionate listening and grateful acknowledgement. At Epic Care Health, we have access to the resources provided through the NHPCO and VA to provide specialized services to veterans nearing the end of their life. Epic Care Health’s staff are specially trained to care for veterans who experience post-traumatic stress syndrome as a result of their service in the armed forces.
