SE We Honor Veterans Program
America’s veterans have done everything asked of them in their mission to serve this country, and Southeastern Health Care at Home (SE) believes it is never too late to give them a hero’s welcome home. SE is proud to partner with the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO) and the Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) as a We Honor Veterans Level Two Partner.
SE staff understand the unique needs of veterans and are prepared to meet the specific challenges that veterans and their families may face at the end of life. SE staff approach veteran hospice patients with respectful inquiry, compassionate listening, and grateful acknowledgment. They accompany and guide veterans through their life stories toward a more peaceful ending.
The Pinning Ceremony
The pinning ceremony gives an opportunity for each veteran to share part of his or her story. By doing so, a sense of meaning and purpose can be gained by the veteran. The pinning ceremony will include a pin and certificate and may include a poem, song, or other tokens of appreciation.
