Veterans’ Services

We are very grateful for veterans, and we consider it an honor to serve those who have served our country.

Lower Cape Fear Hospice is proud to work with the Department of Veterans Affairs as a member of the We Honor Veterans program.  This program is a collaborate effort of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization and the Department of Veteran’s Affairs.

Our admission and clinical teams identify all patients who are veterans in order to best meet their needs. Our social workers assist patients and families with navigating veteran benefit options, answering questions and recognizing and honoring their service throughout their time with Lower Cape Fear Hospice.

Our programs include:

Vet-to-Vet Volunteer Program

Veterans often have a special connection with one another, and we realize they often relate best to another serviceman or woman. Lower Cape Fear Hospice is actively recruiting, training and assigning volunteers with a service background to our veteran patients to provide support, because no one connects to a veteran like another veteran.

Community Outreach/Events

Lower Cape Fear Hospice is invested in our local veteran community. We host, sponsor and participate in veteran-specific events and committees. Some of our outreach projects include:

  • The annual Veteran Stand Down
  • “Honor Flight” documentary screenings
  • Participation at Veterans Council meetings
  • Sitting on the planning committee for the Purple Heart Dinner

We appreciate the dedication and sacrifice of those who have protected our country and our freedom. We consider it an honor and privilege to serve our veterans. We ask that you contact us for more information on how we can assist you, your loved one or your family.

“It was a huge pick-me-up. I was really surprised how nice it was. The corpsmen wore their uniforms and I loved the way the hospice team put it together. It was so touching to be there with fellow servicemen, and my family and friends.”
