It may surprise many people to learn that 25 percent of those who die every year in the United States are veterans. To help provide care and support that reflects the important contributions made by these men and women, Oswego County Hospice is a national partner of the We Honor Veterans program, and is a level 2 of the four level tiers.
This program was developed by the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization in collaboration with the Department of Veterans Affairs to better serve our veterans with life limiting illnesses.
Oswego County Hospice utilizes resources provided by the campaign to integrate the best practices for providing end-of-life care to veterans.
By recognizing the unique needs of our nation’s veterans, Oswego County Hospice is better able to assist veterans and their families toward a more peaceful and dignified death.
It is our mission at Oswego County Hospice to provide end of life services to the men and women who have served our country that reside within the community.
It is our honor to recognize five of these veterans, who are currently clients in our program.
They will receive a certificate and small gift as a token of our appreciation this Veterans’ Day.
