We Honor Veterans

Livingston Proudly Supports The We Honor Veterans Program

  

It surprises many people to learn that 680,000 Veterans die every year in the U.S. – that’s 25 percent of all deaths. Livingston Hospice has been working to help these heroes at life’s end. We Honor Veterans is a national awareness and action campaign developed by National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization, in collaboration with the Department of Veteran Affairs (VA).  This pioneering program assists Veterans hospice patients in providing the best possible care in the best possible manner and setting. It is focused on respectful inquiry, compassionate listening and grateful acknowledgment by recognizing the unique needs of America’s Veterans and their families,

As Ventura County’s sole not-for-profit provider of Hospice, Livingston proudly supports the We Honor Veterans (WHV) program.  WHV is a part of Livingston’s commitment and we support community veterans by:

  • Providing local VA support resources
  • Connecting patients to care including medical and emotional needs
  • Presenting veterans with a United States flag lapel pin and certificate as a token of gratitude and a reminder of their generosity to the country
  • Providing information about WHV resources
  • Accompanying and guiding them through their life stories toward a more peaceful ending

Mike McManus, County of Ventura, Veteran Services Officer Senior Master Sergeant, USAF (ret) said this about Livingston’s program, “Veterans have answered this nation's call to protect all the freedoms we as Americans enjoy daily. They served and sacrificed, at home and abroad, and in some cases, made the ultimate sacrifice. Events like Livingston’s recognition ceremony allow Americans to express their gratitude to veterans. It's a tangible sign that citizens appreciate the efforts of the men and women who serve in our Armed Forces.”
