Kindred Hospice

Kindred Logo

Many of our locations are proud members of We Honor Veterans, a program of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization and the Veterans Administration, which is designed to empower hospice professionals to meet the unique needs of terminally ill veterans.

The program teaches respectful inquiry, compassionate listening and grateful acknowledgement to comfort your loved one with a history of military service and possibly physical or psychological trauma.

Our hospice team presents certificates of appreciation and American flag pins to each veteran, and recognizes your loved one in other ways on military commemorative dates throughout the year. In addition, the team remains vigilant to environmental and other factors which could trigger fear, anxiety and/or painful memories from the past.

We strive to provide the most comfortable and comforting end-of-life experience possible.
