The Veterans Program at Ascend Hospice is a special hospice program for our patients who have served our country in the Armed Forces.
Our goal is simple: to serve as a source of comfort and support by addressing the unique emotional needs of veterans and their families.
By embracing a holistic and personalized approach to our services, we focus on the mind, body and spirit of each individual. A special recognition ceremony is provided for each veteran. The goal of this ceremony is to acknowledge and validate the service and sacrifice our veterans and their families.
With our strong emphasis on education, Ascend Hospice has trained all staff members on the most commonly found issues that pertain to our veteran population. Community education is also supported and provided to increase awareness of veteran and family needs.
Ascend Hospice honors their commitment to patients and families. Often when coping with a serious illness there are many decisions that may seem overwhelming. Through our PATH Program, we work to make things more manageable.
Whether the patient is new to us or one that we have been caring for regularly, we understand that there may be times when hospice services are decided to be put aside or postponed. This does not mean our relationship needs to end, as this may be the very time when families have additional questions or concerns that we can help with.
Our trained hospice staff can help provide the guidance needed. Through phone calls and mailings, we will keep in contact with you through this time of transition. Discussing changes in an individual’s condition, connecting you with community resources, or simply reaching out to offer encouragement — we will be there.
