Hospice Care for VeteransHosparus Health has been named a We Honor Veterans Level Four Partner, the highest designation in this vital veteran support and recognition program established by the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization and the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs.

Hosparus Health achieved the prestigious Four-Star designation for its commitment to implementing rigorous and ongoing veteran-centered education for its staff and volunteers to ensure veteran patients and their families receive the specialized, compassionate care and support they deserve.

Level Four status means Hosparus Health meets all the program’s standards of a recognized partner and is one of the top hospices in the country serving veterans. Since January, Hosparus Health has cared for 1,429 veterans throughout Kentucky and Indiana.

In addition to customized medical, emotional and social support, Hosparus Health provides special recognition to each veteran patient. Volunteers, who are military veterans themselves, honor each patient’s service with a handmade patriotic blanket or cap and a “We Honor Veterans” certificate. Volunteers also make regular companionship visits to veteran patients, providing the unique camaraderie that can only be provided by a fellow veteran.

Hosparus Health is always in need of veterans or active-duty service members to support the growing number of veteran patients facing serious illnesses. To become a volunteer, apply online at HosparusHealth.org/volunteer.
