Veteran Support

Partners In Care Veteran Support Services

Veterans hold a very special place in the hearts of the team at Partners In Care. Veterans have devoted themselves in service to our country, and we are honored to serve them with the best possible care.

Our Veterans Outreach program is unique among hospice organizations in the region. Our Veterans Outreach Coordinator served in the United States Marine Corps, and her team of support specialists are committed to providing specialized care for each of our military member patients and their families. Our Veterans Outreach Coordinator and Veteran Volunteers understand the unique health care and mental health needs and challenges of military veterans because they served in the armed forces and they continue to serve and find ways to provide assistance to the veteran population in our hospice, home health, palliative care, and transitions programs.

Special Veteran Services

In addition to the many Partners in Care medical and support services we provide to all patients, we work with veterans and their families to ensure they receive the benefits they qualify for regarding their military service. Our Veterans Outreach Coordinator works directly with the Department of Veterans Affairs, both state and local, to find answers to your questions, help navigate serious illness, and ensure you or your veteran are receiving the best possible care. We also connect families with other veteran programs that can enrich their bond, memories, and relationship with their loved one.

“I am able to bring joy to their lives. Being a fellow veteran, I can walk beside them and understand the unique challenges they may be facing and help get them the support they need to promote a more peaceful end-of-life experience.”
