It’s an honor to be their advocates.
Our veteran’s program is designed to focus on the social and emotional needs of the patient and their family members. Each veteran is paired with a social worker that will work to uncover the patients’ needs and develop an individualized plan of care. The social worker will help alleviate stress by reaching out to Veteran’s Affairs offices, gather information on benefits and fill out any necessary paperwork. Educating the patient and their family members on specific benefits and resources is just another one of many ways your social work can offer support.
We are devoted to ensuring our veteran’s program is successful. As a level 3 partner of the National Hospice and Palladium Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO) we have built strong relationships with the Veteran’s Affairs (VA) offices across South Carolina, Georgia and Mississippi as well as organizations such as the American Legion and VFW. As part of our commitment to safeguarding the well-being of our veterans’ both physically and mentally we have cultivated a Vet to Vet volunteer program. Through our Vet to Vet volunteer program, we connect veteran volunteers to veteran patients helping to foster relationships and a special bond not many can share.
