About

Caris’ commitment to the We Honor Veterans program demonstrates its commitment to supporting veterans by meeting their unique needs and the needs of their families in the end-of-life journey.


Veterans’ life experiences can influence their hospice needs. They may be affected by:

  • Post-traumatic stress disorder from combat
  • Prisoner of war experience
  • Stoic attitudes that view fear and admitting pain as signs of weakness

Caris’ individualized Plan of Care ensures that Veterans are honored by tailoring their hospice care to meet their specific physical, emotional and spiritual needs

Veteran to Veteran volunteers have a deep desire to serve an underserved population with special needs - other veterans. Veteran volunteers’ understanding of other veterans supports life review and healing at the end of life.
