We Honor Veterans
For veterans, approaching the end of life can refresh memories of traumatic events they faced during their service. Other factors, like whether they enlisted or were drafted, their branch of service and rank, can affect how well they can cherish life’s final chapter.
Responding to veterans’ unique needs is a priority with Hospice of the Calumet Area. We are proud to participate in the Hospice-Veteran Partnership, (HVP), which coordinates care of VA patients with local community hospices.
We serve on the Indiana HVP committee and help develop and share the best ways to bring comfort to veterans at the end of life. We work closely with the Adam Benjamin, Jr. VA Outpatient Clinic in Crown Point and Chicago-area Veteran’s Hospitals.
Simply put, we share the Department of Veterans Affairs’ commitment to do the very best we can for those who once did their very best for us.
