Hospice of the Western Reserve is one of only a handful of hospice organizations statewide to achieve a four-star designation from We Honor Veterans (http://www.wehonorveterans.org), an initiative of the National Hospice & Palliative Care Organization. The four-star ranking is awarded to hospice organizations nationwide that are deemed to offer the highest level of service to Veterans.

Military service has a profound impact on the end-of-life experience and is highly relevant for caregivers working to provide appropriate, personalized care for veterans during their final months of life. For many Veterans, preparing for death conjures memories of a difficult past. The staff of Hospice of the Western Reserve is trained to meet the unique needs of seriously ill veterans and their families.

About Hospice of the Western Reserve: Hospice of the Western Reserve is a community-based, non-profit agency providing comfort care and emotional support to patients and their families, regardless of age, disease or ability to pay. Care is provided wherever the patient lives – in the home, hospital, assisted living/long-term care facility, at David Simpson Hospice House, our 42-bed residential facility overlooking Lake Erie or at Ames Family Hospice House, our 32-bed residential facility nestled in the woods of Westlake.
