Nathan Adelson Hospice Achieves Level Four Status in
‘We Honor Veterans’ Program
LAS VEGAS – April 10, 2019 – Carole Fisher, president and CEO of Nathan Adelson Hospice, announced that the hospice has achieved Level Four in the We Honor Veterans Program.
By achieving this level as a We Honor Veterans Partner, Nathan Adelson Hospice is recognized as an organization that actively works to increase access to hospice and palliative care for Veterans in our community. Nathan Adelson Hospice will continue to provide Veteran-centric education for staff and volunteers, identify patients with military experience, and build professional and organizational capacity to provide care for Veterans while developing and strengthening partnerships with the VA and other Veterans’ organizations.
“It is our honor to support local Veterans who have valiantly served our country,” said Carole Fisher, President and CEO of Nathan Adelson Hospice. “Our organization remains committed to meeting the unique and varied needs of Veterans residing in southern Nevada. No Veteran should ever end the journey of life alone, afraid or in pain.”
Part of the Level Four practices include conducting Veteran-specific educational presentations and increasing access to care within the community. Nathan Adelson Hospice will expand its Veteran-to-Veteran program, where Veteran volunteers are paired with hospice patients who are also Veterans. Veteran volunteers help assist with informing Veterans about available benefits. The volunteers encourage patients to share their stories, allowing them to feel validated, open up, and to reach peace at the end of their lives.
