Honor a Terminally Ill Veteran

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Empath Tidewell Hospice


The Tidewell HONORS program prides itself in making sure that no Veteran dies without being thanked and saluted for their service by a fellow Veteran (unless they prefer not to be). Volunteer Veterans visit our hospice patient Veterans in private homes, nursing homes, hospitals, assisted livings, or wherever they consider "home" and read a formal script, salute them, and present them with a certificate and lapel pin. For some Veterans, this is the first time they were thanked for their service or welcomed home. Ceremonies can take as little as 15 minutes, but often a bond forms quickly between the volunteer and patient and time is spent reminiscing over aspects of military service. Appropriate PPE is provided depending on public health situation. Covid-19 vaccination is required.

About Empath Tidewell Hospice


5955 Rand Blvd, Sarasota, FL 34238, US

Mission Statement

Unified in empathy, we serve our communities through extraordinary Full Life Care for all.


Founded as Suncoast (1977) and Tidewell (1980) as true pioneers in hospice care, each of our organizations adapted to change and grew to meet the needs of the community, ultimately evolving to become Empath Health and Stratum Health System, respectively.

We came together as Empath Health in March 2021, creating the country’s largest non-profit hospice and home care-based health care organization. Rooted in the remarkable people that give so much of themselves, we look to further our unwavering commitment to uniquely high standards by now growing together.

Our vision, shaped by inspiration and nurtured by imagination, is now made possible by our collaboration. Together, we will grow to better support the communities we love and are so privileged to serve. Together we can protect our legacy of exceptional care, better strengthen our ability to provide and best solidify our devotion to bringing together the healthcare expertise necessary with the emotional and spiritual support so essential to our shared mission.
