One out of every four of our hospice patients is a veteran.
Gulfside Hospice is proud to be a Level 4 Partner of the national We Honor Veterans program, which meets the unique needs of dying veterans. Donations support patient care for our veterans, pinning ceremonies and grateful acknowledgement of their service to our country.
Another aspect of We Honor Veterans is the veteran-to-veteran volunteer program. Gulfside places a strong emphasis on placing veteran volunteers with veteran patients in an effort to promote a deeper connection between both volunteers and patients. Volunteers are available to help hospice patients and support them emotionally and spiritually.
