Unique Caring for Veterans

For veterans, deep-rooted memories of combat or other military experiences can return near the end of life. Our specially trained staff works with veterans and their families to provide the best possible end-of-life experience. We work to bring them the peace, dignity and comfort they deserve. Serenity Care Hospice is a part of the We Honor Veterans program.

Compassionate Care

While all hospices provide end of life care, not all are committed to being present at the bedside at the time of death. Serenity Care Hospice believes that the moments patients and families experience during this time make lasting impressions. To ensure we are with you when you need us the most, Serenity Care Hospice has developed the Compassionate Care Program. During your loved ones final hours, Serenity Care Hospice staff members remain at the bedside with the patient. To make sure these precious moments are filled with comfort and peace, our staff will monitor and quickly address any changes in the patient's condition, as well as, provide support to family members and loved ones so they can focus on giving the patient love and compassion only they can provide.

Bereavement Program

Through our bereavement program, Serenity Care Hospice continues to provide comfort following the death of your loved one. Our staff will provide encouragement and support through phone calls and visits for up to 12 months. You will also receive letters and literature about grief and loss. In addition, we offer monthly grief support groups and memorial services. If necessary, our staff will connect family members with needed community resources.

Volunteer Program

Hospice volunteers provide support to people living with a serious illness and help their family caregivers in a variety of ways. 

 

Our volunteers can:

  • Provide companionship to the patient and their caregiver.

  • Engage the patient in their hobbies.

  • Listen and engage patients in telling their life story or expressing feelings.

  • Stay with the patient so the caregiver can take time to care for her/himself.
