We Honor Veterans – Level 4 Partner

Vet-doing-a-SaluteThe Hospice of Baton Rouge is on a mission to serve those who have served their country. America’s Veterans often carry experiences that present unique challenges at the end-of-life. We Honor Veterans®, a program of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization and the Department of Veterans Affairs, is designed to empower hospice professionals to meet the special needs of dying veterans. We believe it is never too late to give them a hero’s welcome home with honor and appreciation.  For more information on the We Honor Veterans program, visit www.wehonorveterans.org

According to statistics, a quarter of all deaths in America every year are veterans. Most of those veterans do not receive end-of-life care through the VA health care system, but rather through a hospice program. As a We Honor Veterans® – Level 4 Partner, The Hospice of Baton Rouge’s staff has received training to better assist veterans at the end-of-life. Our team understands their challenges.
