Coastal Hospice’s We Honor Veterans program has taken the next step toward supporting the veterans in our care, thanks to our dedicated volunteers. Starting in January, every veteran who comes into our care is honored with a special visit from a patient care volunteer. During the visit, the veteran receives a personalized certificate with his or her name and branch of service and a patriotic-themed lap blanket to warm them with honor.
The volunteers report the veterans love sharing their service stories.
