With a focus on improving end-of-life care for Veterans, Our Hospice of South Central Indiana partners with We Honor Veterans. We Honor Veterans is an awareness and action campaign developed by the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization in collaboration with the Department of Veteran Affairs (VA). WHV focuses on respectful inquiry, compassionate listening and grateful acknowledgement of the service given to our country by America's veterans.

Campaign Information

  • Of 2.4 million deaths in the United States each year, approximately 680,000 are Veterans
  • A vast majority of Veterans are not enrolled in VA and may not be aware of end-of-life services and benefits available to them, including the Medicare Hospice Benefit and VA-paid hospice care
  • Community hospices can join other hospice providers across the country in honoring our Veterans and be listed on the We Honor Veterans website.

Through staff education and community outreach, Our Hospice is better prepared to care for Veterans. Our relationships with VA facilities and other Veteran organizations have been strengthened, and we strive to provide the best hospice care for Veterans living in our community. 

Veterans are invited to participate and contribute to this program by volunteering with our Veteran-to-Veteran Volunteer program. Volunteers are an important part of the WHV program. Interaction with Veteran patients, the sharing of life experience, assisting with VA benefits, Pinning Ceremonies and other opportunities to recognize our Veteran patients are among a few of the many areas a Veteran volunteer can assist a Veteran patient.
