About

Good Shepherd Hospice is a proud partner of the We Honor Veterans program. It is a program. We Honor Veterans, is a program of the National Hospice and Pallitiave Care Organization (NHPCO) in collaboration with the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).

We want to make sure that No Veteran Dies Alone (NVDA). NVDA is a program designed to honor Veterans and to meet the needs of those Veterans who, for whatever reason, find themselves alone. Volunteers will provide presence, companionship, and reassurance to the dying Veterans.

The Veteran-to-Veteran Volunteer Program aims to pair recruited Veteran Volunteers with hospice patients who have been identified as Veterans. Once paired with hospice patients who also have military experience, Veteran Volunteers have the unique ability to relate and connect with each patient thereby creating an environment where life review and healing may occur.

If you are a Veteran and want to help a fellow Veteran join the No Veteran Dies Alone program.
