Hospice of North Ottawa Community Reaches New Level of National Veterans Program
Hospice of North Ottawa Community delivers Veteran-centric care to the community as a We Honor Veterans partner recently achieving 4 star partner status with We Honor Veterans, a program of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization. The progression to this new level demonstrates a high level of commitment to Veteran-centric care in the community.
As a partner, specialized care is provided to Veterans who are facing a serious illness. This includes a Veteran-to-Veteran volunteer program, training on conflict-specific medical and mental health concerns, and knowledge to assist Veterans in navigating VA benefits.
NHPCO and the Department of Veterans Affairs launched We Honor Veterans in 2010 to address the growing need for Veteran-centered care, especially as Veterans from different eras are aging and need access to Veteran-centric palliative and hospice care.
