Cornerstone SALUTES!

Cornerstone SALUTES! Veterans

With one out of every four dying Americans being a U.S. veteran, Cornerstone Hospice has made a concerted effort to ensure these heroes receive the honor, dignity and medical care they deserve.

Since 1984, Cornerstone Hospice has provided care and services to American veterans experiencing life limiting illnesses. In 2010, Cornerstone Hospice enhanced that care by joining the We Honor Veterans program, a national initiative in partnership with the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization and Veterans Affairs. Our Cornerstone SALUTES! service has continued to grow and has reached the highest partner level – Four Stars – in the We Honor Veterans program.

Cornerstone SALUTES! is a comprehensive hospice program respectfully celebrating veterans’ service to our country, at home and abroad, and providing care that recognizes the challenges unique to military families.

  • Staff is specially trained to meet the unique needs of our veterans.
  • We can provide a tailor-made Pinning Ceremony for the veteran patient and family by a veteran member of our staff or a veteran volunteer.  A special pin and a Certificate of Appreciation are presented to the patient.
  • We network with other veteran services to help Cornerstone Hospice work together and join in the fabric of veteran support in all of our communities.
