We Honor Veterans is a project of National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO) in collaboration with the Department of Veteran's Affairs (VA). These groups have invited hospices throughout the country to join a pioneering program focused on respectful inquiry of, compassionate listening to, and grateful acknowledgment for our veteran clients and patients. By recognizing the unique needs of the veterans we serve, our staff at Redmond-Sisters Hospice is working to accompany and guide our local veterans and their families through their life stories and toward a more peaceful ending. We hope you will join us in our effort. Do you have questions or know a veteran who may need our assistance? Please call us at 541.548.7483.
Local Veterans And Their Needs
At Redmond-Sisters Hospice, our main objective is to provide comfort and support at the end of life. Because we know that one out of every four dying Americans is a veteran, we are working hard to equip our hospice to meet the unique needs of our local veteran community.
As a result of our collaboration with the NHPCO, we have had the opportunity to learn how best to serve veterans through the challenges they may be facing from illness, isolation or traumatic life experience. By recognizing the unique challenges of each veteran patient, we are able to offer them the dignity and hero's welcome home that they deserve.
