November 2022 – Veterans Day

For all of those that have worn the uniform in defense of the United States, we say thank you.  Each November 11th, we honor the Veterans of our armed forces and their service to this country.  Their dedication to duty and service stand as examples to all of us. 

At Good Shepherd Hospice, we too dedicate ourselves to our commitment to provide the exceptional hospice experience through compassionate care.  This commitment to compassionate care extends to our Veterans.  We participate in Honor Flights which help Veterans experience a day at our national memorials.  Our Vet-to-Vet volunteers offer the unique ability to relate, connect, share stories and enhance the quality of life for veteran patients.  This creates a common bond that only Veterans can share.  Our Vet-to-Vet Café events provide education on the benefits that hospice care with Good Shepherd provides to our Veteran patients.

 By recognizing the unique needs of our nation’s Veterans who are facing life-limiting illness, Good Shepherd Hospice, through the We Honor Veterans program, is able to accompany and guide America’s Veterans and their families toward a more peaceful ending. In cases where there might be specific needs related to the Veteran’s military service, combat experience or other traumatic events, Good Shepherd Hospice has access to the necessary tools to help support Veterans and their families. To learn more about how we provide compassionate care to our Veterans, honoring their dedication to duty through our own commitment to serving our patients and their loved ones, contact us today.
