Good Samaritan is recognized by the “We Honor Veterans” program

June 6, 2012 2:06 pm

Hospice professionals across the country focus on a single purpose: to provide comfort and support at the end of life. That’s why America’s hospice professionals are on a mission to learn how to serve Veterans through the challenges they may be facing from illness, isolation or traumatic life experience. While our mission may be straightforward, fulfilling it is anything but simple, as each patient has a unique life story and a unique set of needs. And when it comes to the needs of America’s Veterans, if we are unprepared, our mission can be challenged or even made impossible.

We Honor Veterans is a program through the National Hospice and Palliative Care organization this is focused on respectful inquiry, compassionate listening and grateful acknowledgment. By recognizing their unique needs, hospice staff and volunteers learn how to accompany and guide America’s Veterans and their families through their life stories toward a more peaceful ending.

Good Samaritan recently achieved Level 1 status in NHPCO’s “We Honor Veterans” program. This level is obtained through significant community and staff education and implementation of programs for veterans and their families. Dedicated to honoring veterans’ service and sacrifice, Good Sam will continue to partner and collaborate with the goal of fully recognizing our veterans and meeting their specific needs at end of life.
