Every person experiences the end of life differently. A veteran’s military service can add a distinct dimension to the level of physical, emotional, and spiritual support they need. Deep-rooted memories of combat may manifest in different ways and are often recounted as veterans face their own mortality.
At Community Healthcare of Texas, our team is specifically trained to support the unique needs of veterans. We strive to meet their needs and bring them peace, dignity, and comfort during a life-limiting illness.
In addition to expert medical care for veterans, Community Healthcare of Texas provides emotional and spiritual support for the entire family. Our team of professionals, including physicians, registered nurses, social workers, chaplains, and volunteers, works with the veteran and their family to address their priorities, wishes, and needs for care and support.
Community Healthcare of Texas is proud Level 4 partners of We Honor Veterans, a pioneering campaign of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization in collaboration with the Department of Veterans Affairs to improve the care veterans receive from hospice and palliative care providers.
Additionally, hospice services are fully covered through the Veterans Affairs benefits, Medicare, Medicaid, and private insurance.
Community Healthcare of Texas also now offers a resource guide to assist patients and families in identifying, understanding, and acquiring appropriate veteran benefits through the Veterans Administration and each State’s Department of Veterans Services. The Veteran Benefits and Resources for Hospice and Palliative Care Patients Guide includes information for veterans and their families regarding military pay, retirement pay, and survivor benefits through the Defense Finance and Accounting Services.
