We Honor Veterans
We are on a mission to serve the veterans who have served our country.
Treasure Coast Hospice has achieved the Level 3 designation in the We Honor Veterans program, a joint effort by the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization and the Veterans Administration to recognize veterans' special end-of-life needs.
While 1,990 agencies are designated as recruits in the program, Treasure Coast Hospice is the 157th to be ranked in Level 3, and we are already well on the way to meeting the criteria for the Level 4 designation.
To earn the Level 3 designation, Treasure Coast Hospice has:
Included presentations on end-of-life care for veterans in its volunteer orientations.
Continued training program for our Veteran to Veteran volunteer program.
Continued using a military history checklist at the time of admission to identify veterans who are eligible for additional VA benefits, treatment for specific war-related social and emotional issues and a pinning ceremony to recognize military service.
Provided specially trained admissions nurses for patients referred from the VA hospital to ensure continuity of care between medical teams.
Conducted veteran-specific presentations in the community.
Developed, implemented and evaluated procedures for helping veterans and families to access veteran benefits.
Nurtured an ongoing relationship development with designated VA service organizations in our area.
