Ontario-Yates Hospice achieves Level 3 of ‘We Honor Veterans’

Ontario-Yates Hospice, a program of UR Medicine Home Care, recently achieved Partner Level Three for the We Honor Veterans program. Level Four is the highest partner level, which Ontario-Yates Hospice expects to earn next year.

We Honor Veterans is a program through the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization in collaboration with the Department of Veterans Affairs.

By voluntarily participating in We Honor Veterans, Ontario-Yates Hospice ensures every veteran in their hospice program receives the proper care and a hero’s welcome home. During a moving ceremony, OYH publicly acknowledges the patient’s military service and presents a flag pin, a personalized certificate and a flag blanket.

They also meet veterans’ unique medical and emotional concerns that can result from combat, and connect families to organizations that can uncover veterans’ benefits.
