America’s Veterans sacrifice so much in service to our country. As their story is nearing completion, it’s still not too late to give them a hero’s welcome through hospice care that improves quality of life and offers the comfort and dignity they deserve.
We Honor Veterans is about acknowledging the unique life story that every Veteran has and recognizing that this story dictates so much when it comes to helping them determine their own challenges, needs and goals. Through respectful inquiry, compassionate listening and grateful acknowledgement, our team follows and maintains the principles of the We Honor Veterans programs, guiding these American heroes and their families through their life story and toward peaceful final moments.
Through the partnership between Salus Hospice of San Fernando Valley and the Department of Veteran’s Affairs, our goal is to ensure that each Veteran receives quality care at the end of life that is accepting and respectful of the strengths and challenges that the Veteran has faced throughout their commitment to service. Training through the We Honor Veterans Program teaches our staff valuable skills and provides us with important resources that we use to provide the very best end of life care to our Veteran patients and their family members.
We Honor Veterans pinning ceremonies publicly acknowledge the service and sacrifices made by each Veteran and their family members. Patients feel a strong sense of purpose and often feel more connected to their own meaning in life as they receive the American flag pin, poem, blanket and certificate. During this peaceful ceremony, these items are thoughtfully and respectfully given to them by one of our Vet-to-Vet Volunteers as an expression of our gratitude for their service and willingness to entrust their care to our team.
