Every person experiences end of life differently. A veteran’s military service can add a distinct dimension to the level of physical, emotional and spiritual support he or she needs. Deep-rooted memories of combat may manifest in different ways and often are recounted as a veteran faces his own mortality.
Community Hospice of Texas and Providence Hospice are specially 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 Hospice of Texas and Providence Hospice provide emotional and spiritual support for the entire family. A team of hospice professionals, including a physician, registered nurse, social worker, chaplain as well as volunteers, works with the veteran and their family to address their priorities, wishes and needs for care and support.
Community Hospice of Texas and Providence Hospice are proud 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.
Hospice services are fully covered through the Veterans Affairs benefits, Medicare, Medicaid and private insurance.
