We Honor Veterans

Calvert Hospice has become a national partner of We Honor Veterans, a pioneering campaign developed by the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO) in collaboration with the Department of Veterans Affairs.

Calvert Hospice currently has a Level Four Status with the VA-NHPCO Partnership. To achieve Level Four, Calvert Hospice expanded its efforts to promote hospice care to veterans in Calvert County. In Levels One, Two, and Three, we provided education to staff, volunteers, and the community at large about veteran specific issues and implemented agency wide policies to monitor and address veteran needs. Calvert Hospice reached Level Four in 2017 by continuing our efforts to honor and care for the veterans in our community.

Veteran Salute Ceremonies

Calvert Hospice is privileged to offer veteran patients a “Salute Ceremony,” in which staff and volunteers honor the veteran’s service to our country. Surrounded by family, friends, staff, and volunteers, the veteran is presented with gifts of appreciation that may include a certificate, pin, readings, and a branch specific blanket. The ceremony culminates with a heartfelt salute to the veteran from fellow veterans.
