Coastal Hospice

We Honor Veterans

We Honor Veterans is a hospice program to serve and honor those who served us.

There are over 21 million veterans living in America today. These men and women often carry experiences from their military service that present unique healthcare challenges.

The Department of Veterans Affairs and the National Hospice & Palliative Care Organization together developed the We Honor Veterans program to empower hospices to meet the unique needs of veterans and their families. Coastal Hospice is a proud member of this national program.

If you or a loved one who comes into our care is a veteran, you will receive a special visit that includes a personalized certificate, a patriotic blanket and, whenever possible, a salute from a uniformed military guard.

Our staff is prepared to meet your unique needs. We can assist you in enrolling in and receiving your VA benefits. We can co-ordinate your care with the VA and other healthcare organizations.

On Veteran’s Day, we hold special honor ceremonies open to all veterans across our service area.
