About

Are you a veteran? Do you know a veteran who would like to serve other veterans as they approach the end of life?

Hospice of Northeast Georgia Medical System (501(c)3 nonprofit) participates in a nationwide program called, "We Honor Veterans."

"We Honor Veterans" is a program of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization in collaboration with the Department of Veterans Affairs. The program teaches respectful inquiry, compassionate listening and grateful acknowledgment to comfort hospice patients who have a history of military service and possibly physical and psychological trauma.

We believe veterans can provide unique and crucial support to other veterans because...

Veterans may develop trust that comes from common life experiences. They may share camaraderie that transcends civilian experience. Often, veterans may feel free to share more about their experiences with other veterans and secrecy and concern over societal reactions may diminish.

Please join us and share your valuable experience with others.
