We Honor Veterans

 

HPH Hospice was accepted by the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization and the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) in January, 2011, as a partnering agency in the “We Honor Veterans” Program. American’s veterans have done everything asked of them in their mission to serve our country, and we believe it’s never too late to give them a hero’s welcome home. That’s why HPH Hospice has joined this national movement to support veterans at the end-of-life, so that all the men and women who served our country may live their final days in dignity and peace.
