A branch of United Hospital Center nurses and volunteers who work with veterans during their final days recently reached a new status.
People's Hospice has been part of the We Honor Veterans campaign for one year. They reached partner level three status. This means that nurses and volunteers have reached a level of education where they know how to help veterans in their final days of life.
While the medical treatment may be similar to most on hospice, some reactions may be different. That's why the center goes through this training and also why they allow military personnel to volunteer to sit with these veterans if their caretakers need a break.
If you're a veteran or active duty military personnel who would like to volunteer for this program, call 1-800-339-9896.
