Hospice of the Fisher Home is proud to have achieved

We Honor Veterans Partner Level Two. 

We Honor Veterans Program is a collaboration of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO) with the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). This program invites hospices, and VA facilities to partner together in recognizing the unique and important needs of America’s veterans and their families. This partnership with the VA assists and educates hospices in learning how to accompany and guide veterans…especially combat veterans, through their life stories toward a more peaceful and compassionate end of life experience.


We Honor Veterans Program provides educational tools and resources to advance these goals: 

  • Promote education, including veterans' benefits

  • Increase organizational capacity to serve veterans

  • Acknowledge and honor their military service commitment

  • Support development of strategic partnerships

  • Increase access to veterans

We Honor Veterans Program also provides tiered recognition to hospices that demonstrate a systematic commitment to improving care for veterans. There are four levels that partners can achieve in the program.
