We Honor Veterans

We Honor Veterans is a program of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization. This partnership, between Carroll Hospice, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and the community, promotes services, education and recognition for all veterans and their families, including:

• Honoring veteran patients’ military service with a presentation of a certificate, pin and salute by a military veteran volunteer;

• Facilitating bereavement and social work needs for area veterans and their families in partnership with the VA; and

• Educating our staff and community of the specific needs of veterans and how our hospice can meet those challenges they face at the end of life.

Carroll Hospice is pleased to provide veteran-specific education, presentations and services to our staff and community to better serve our veteran patients and their families.

Carroll Hospice has achieved level five status, the highest in the We Honor Veterans program, for its efforts in addressing the specialized needs of veteran hospice patients and honoring their service to the country.

"I am extremely proud of this accomplishment," says Regina Bodnar, executive director of Carroll Hospice. "We've always been committed to caring for our veterans and ensuring they are honored and celebrated in life, but now our efforts are being formally recognized, and I am delighted."
