Serving Those Who ServedThe Elizabeth Hospice is a proud partner in the We Honor Veterans Program and has been recognized by the VA and NHPCO as a Level Four Partner, the highest designation in the program.
“My father was a WWII Veteran. When he faced a chronic illness in his later years, The Elizabeth Hospice supported his transition to end-of-life care. The Elizabeth Hospice was as dedicated to my father as my father was to his nation. Their service truly honored his.”

Many of our staff have also served in the armed forces, and we understand the unique culture veterans share.
We know that some combat veterans who have coped well throughout their lives may experience increased combat-related memories and distressing emotions during their end-of-life journey; and that the effects of military service, good and bad, can continue to resonate throughout a lifetime.
