EverHeart Hospice is also proud to honor all veteran patients through our partnership with the National We Honor Veterans Program. As part of our We Honor Veterans Program, we offer pinning ceremonies to veterans receiving hospice services. These ceremonies are performed by a special group of volunteers that are fellow veterans. The ceremonies consist of presenting the patient with a leather-bound folder that holds a personalized certificate with the patient’s name and the branch of service they were in, a unique pin that our volunteer pins on the patient, and a salute. Volunteers will also discuss the patient’s time in service and their experiences if the patient wishes.
EverHeart Hospice’s We Honor Veterans Program gives patients that have served our country honor and dignity, providing them with the recognition they deserve. Visit our Volunteer or We Honor Veterans pages to learn more about our program or how you can become a volunteer.
