Treasure Coast Hospice is proud to be a certified Level Five We Honor Veterans Partner with Veterans Affairs and other veterans organizations. This partnership demonstrates our commitment to providing quality care and services to veterans and their families in our communities.

We are honored to care for veterans with advanced illness, wherever they live - in their family homes, assisted living residences, skilled nursing facilities or hospitals.

As a We Honor Veteran (WHV) partner, Treasure Coast Hospice is focused on ensuring that excellent care at the end of life is available for our nation’s veterans and that support is available for their families. We use the WHV military checklist to access and provide individual education to each veteran and family. This WHV tool allows us to disseminate the current end-of-life needs as it relates to the veteran and their family. The following activities and events are examples of the many resources Treasure Coast Hospice provides to make a positive impact in the veteran's end-of-life care:Treasured Veterans
  • Veteran to Veteran Patient Visits
  • Veteran Honoring ceremonies (individual and group)
  • Veteran Presidential Certificate application assistance
  • Community Veteran Events
  • Veteran-Hospice Partnerships
  • Veteran Resources - From Veterans Affairs
  • Veteran Benefits Education
Veteran Volunteer Program

Our Veteran Volunteer Program pairs 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 reflection and healing may occur.

Veteran Pinning Ceremony

A Veteran Pinning Ceremony is an opportunity to publicly acknowledge the military service and sacrifices made by the veteran and his/her family. The ceremony, conducted by a Veteran Volunteer, honors and recognizes a hospice patient’s service to our country and helps them and their loved ones find closure and peace at the end of life.

Treasure Coast Hospice provides volunteer training to its veterans in the Veteran Volunteer Program.
