We Honor Vets

By Cassandra Cotton, Nathan Adelson Hospice Community Outreach Manager

As Memorial Day approaches, it is our privilege to honor those who have served and are no longer with us.

There are also those whose journey of life is ending. Veterans are about 14% of Nevada’s population — and they have unique end-of-life needs that can be complicated by recurrences of PTSD, the loss of comrades, and even the need for validation of their time of service.

At Nathan Adelson Hospice, we consider the military’s cultural structure and values, and are proud to be at Level Five, the highest possible, of the We Honor Veterans program. This program educates and addresses many of the unique needs of veterans through respectful dialogue, compassionate listening, and grateful acknowledgment.

Nathan Adelson Hospice is recognized as an organization that actively works to increase access to hospice and palliative care for veterans in our community.

Regardless of the current pandemic, we will continue to provide veteran-centric care to patients with military experience.

Taking care of our community is at the center of everything Nathan Adelson Hospice does. As our community has worked through the challenges of the last year, Nathan Adelson Hospice is here to support patients and families with exceptional end-of-life care. We have been serving this community for more than 40 years, and we will continue to do so in these critical times.

Please know that we are taking necessary precautions in order to deliver expert and compassionate care to those we serve at the end of their lives. It is our vision that no one ends the journey of life alone, afraid or in pain.

If you or a loved one is a veteran and have questions, call Nathan Adelson Hospice at (775) 751-6700. We wish everyone a happy and safe Memorial Day.
