On Veterans Day and everyday, Good Shepherd Community Care salutes all who are serving and those who have served, in any branch and all capacities of the military. We thank you.
Good Shepherd Community Hospice is Level Four We Honor Veterans accredited. We Honor Veterans, a pioneering campaign launched by the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization, intends to help improve the care veterans receive from hospice and palliative care providers
As a Level Four partner, Good Shepherd has committed to honoring veterans at the end of life and has demonstrated the organizational capacity to ensure that veterans have access to veteran-centric, quality end-of-life care.
By recognizing the unique needs of veterans who are confronting a life-limiting illness, Good Shepherd will be able to support Massachusetts’ veterans and their families toward a more peaceful ending – integrating tools for addressing some needs which may be specifically related to veterans’ military service, combat experience or other traumatic events they may have experienced.
