We honor our nation’s veterans. Those brave men and women who literally put their lives at risk for our country. Hospice of Citrus and the Nature Coast partners with a network of professionals, volunteers and other organizations to provide quality end of life services for all veterans and their families. “Community Partners” include the Veteran’s Hospitals in Gainesville and St. Petersburg and the Veteran’s Clinic.
Pending death can be more difficult for veterans who have experienced active combat or with a history of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Trained nurses, social workers and chaplains offer specialized services to both the patient and family members. They improve the veterans’ access to hospice and palliative care services at any location and at various levels of care and educate the veteran about end-of-life issues.
