Cornerstone VNA Achieves “We Honor Veterans” Partner Level Four

Cornerstone VNA Achieves We Honor Veterans Partner Level Four

Rochester, NH:  Cornerstone VNA, a nonprofit home health and hospice care provider, is proud to announce that their Hospice Care program has achieved Level Four status with the We Honor Veterans program, the highest recognition level of this important program.  This special recognition reflects Cornerstone VNA’s commitment to ensuring veterans have access to quality end-of-life care. According to Kelly Doherty, RN-C, MSN, ARNP-BC, ACHPN, Hospice & Palliative Care Director at Cornerstone VNA, “This hospice specific program allows us to better care for Veterans at end-of-life.” 

 

We Honor Veterans is a national Hospice provider awareness campaign conducted by the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization in collaboration with the Department of Veterans Affairs. As a We Honor Veterans Partner, Cornerstone VNA is better prepared to build organizational capacity to provide quality care for veterans and to strengthen partnerships with veteran organizations. In addition, they strive to increase access to hospice and palliative care for veterans living in their community and to network with other hospices across the country to learn about best practice models.

 

According to The National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization, Hospices can “earn their stars” and matching logo by completing activities for each of four levels of commitment. This allows VA staff and Veterans to easily identify hospices that have made a commitment to offer veteran-specific care and services provided by a competent and highly skilled workforce.

 

According to Hospice Volunteer Coordinator, Nancy Nicolazzo, “At Cornerstone VNA, we are privileged to do whatever we can to honor veterans and their family members, and to express our gratitude to them for their gallantry at the end of their lives.” Cornerstone VNA has many Hospice Volunteers, including Paula Carr and Brue Larrabee, who are both veterans.  According to Bruce Larrabee, “Veterans aren’t looking for a handout, they’re looking for a hand.” As a We Honor Veterans Partner, Cornerstone VNA is proud to give veterans a helping hand and the support they need at end-of-life.  

 

For more information about the We Honor Veterans program at Cornerstone VNA, contact Nancy Nicolazzo, Chaplain/Hospice Volunteer Coordinator at 603-332-1133 x1239 or NNicolazzo@cornerstonevna.org.
