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

Myth: hospice care must be provided in a VA facility
Truth: hospice services are available in private homes, assisted living facilities, nursing homes or wherever one calls home
Myth: using hospice services will disqualify a veteran for VA benefits
Truth: accessing hospice services will not affect a veteran’s eligibility for any VA benefits to which they are otherwise entitled
