We Honor Veterans

Veterans logo

Hospice of Frederick County is grateful to our United States veterans and their service to our country. Through the We Honor Veterans program, which is a collaboration between the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization and the Department of Veterans Affairs, we have trained our staff to be highly sensitive to the unique needs of our nation’s veterans.

How We Honor Veterans

We provide compassionate and respectful support to veterans and their families. We have trained our staff to be sensitive to the unique needs of our nation's heroes. Each veteran who receives hospice care benefits from:

  • Bereavement counselors to help with grief
  • Social workers to bring psychosocial support
  • Chaplains for religious and spiritual support

Veteran Liaison

As a result of a generous grant from the Kalhert Foundation, https://www.thekahlertfoundation.org/, HFC now has a full-time Veteran Liaison staff member to offer comradeship, support and assistance to the veteran and their family. This can include:

  • Providing information about state and VA benefits such as Aid and Attendance, pensions, cemeteries, monuments and military honors
  • Assistance in obtaining discharge documents, records, medals and awards
  • Recognition ceremony that includes presentation of a certificate of appreciation and veteran pin
  • Visits from veteran volunteers
