We Honor Veterans

We Honor Veterans Program

Horizon Home Care and Hospice is a proud member of the We Honor Veterans Program.

This is an initiative developed by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and The National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO). As a hospice partner, we are committed to providing veteran-centric care and services to our veteran patients and their families. 

  • We screen for veteran status to ensure that patients are recognized and thanked for their service, and are aware of possible benefit eligibility.
  • Horizon staff receives veteran-centric training in order to ensure exceptional care and emotional support.
  • Our approach is multidisciplinary, including nurses, social workers, chaplains, volunteers, life-enriching therapists (massage, animal and music therapies), grief support, and more.
  • Veterans are provided with meaningful services and care, sensitive to the unique needs of veterans.
  • Our veterans are celebrated at pinning ceremonies where veterans are presented with a certificate of recognition and an American Flag pin.
  • Remembrance Day ceremonies are held at assisted livings and nursing homes.
  • We engage in community outreach programs at local legions.

One out of every four dying Americans is a veteran.  We are committed to honoring and caring for those who have given so much for our freedom.
