Serenity Hospice & Home (SH&H) is a Level 5 Partner in the We Honor Veterans Program. We Honor Veterans is a national awareness campaign by the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO) in collaboration with the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). SH&H is committed to honoring our Veterans and ensuring they are aware of the benefits to which they are entitled.
SH&H volunteers who are Veterans are assigned to these patients through the Veteran to Veteran Volunteer Program. In addition to visiting and sharing stories, the patient’s military service is recognized in a ceremony. Sometimes called ‘Pinning’ ceremonies, the patient receives a pin and certificate and can be an emotional time for the patient and family.
Serenity is also active in presenting information to area Veterans service organizations; VFW posts, American Legion posts, etc. making them aware of these benefits and services.
