Veterans

Joliet Area Community Hospice has been honored to provide services for thousands of veterans since 1982 and now enhances that care with Joliet Area Community Hospice’s Pride, Honor Dignity (PHD) Veteran’s Program. This comprehensive program focuses on respectfully celebrating veterans and providing care that recognizes the unique challenges that may exist in military families.
This program provides care for those who served with Pride, will Honor their lives and service to country, and offers the Dignity so richly deserved.

We Honor Veterans Program

In order to provide greater community outreach, specialized education, and enhancements that honor the Veterans in our six county service area, Joliet Area Community Hospice is embarking on a two-fold project for Veterans and their families: Achievement of the We Honor Veterans program highest distinction and the creation of an outdoor
Veterans Memorial Garden at JACH .

The National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO) reports that one of every four dying Americans is a Veteran. Joliet Area Community Hospice has been honored to provide services for thousands of veterans since 1982 and enhances that care with JACH s own Pride, Honor, Dignity (PHD) Veteran s Program. JACH is committed to providing care for those who served with Pride, Honoring their lives and service to country, and offering the Dignity so richly deserved. This is accomplished by offering caregiver support, Veterans to Veterans programs, pinning recognition ceremonies, bereavement support, and community education in addition to guidance on resources and benefits available through the Dept. of Veterans Affairs.

Joliet Area Community Hospice is currently working to achieve the We Honor Veteran s, Hospice Professionals on a Mission to Serve NHPCO program s highest level of distinction. This pioneering program has four levels of achievement that provides opportunities to educate our staff and community about the unique needs of Veterans at end of life. We recently achieved Level 1 designation, with the goal of reaching Level 2 as soon as possible. We now proudly display the We Honor Veterans logo on our website, promotional materials and advertising. We are building capacity and collaborations as we achieve the goals of: improved quality of care for Veterans and their families, increased access to hospice and palliative care, strengthened partnerships with Veteran organizations, and adoption of best practice standards of care for Veterans. Specially trained staff and veteran volunteers are a cornerstone of this program. For more information, contact the Volunteer Department at JACH.

Pride. Honor. and Dignity

What is Hospice?
There comes a time when an illness cannot be cured. At that time, hospice services are a great benefit, a way to thank America s veterans by providing them with comfort, Pride. Honor. and Dignity in their final days.
Hospice is a type of specialized care designed to treat an individual, not a disease. At Joliet Area Community Hospice, we assist people and their families facing the end of life with a full-range of medical, emotional, spiritual, and social needs. We provide care for Veterans with an array of life limiting illnesses, including but not limited to cancer, AIDS, ALS, heart disease, liver disease, MS, Parkinson s disease, pulmonary disease, stroke, and end stage dementia and Alzheimer s disease.

The hospice team consists of:

  • Patient Primary Physician
  • Hospice Medical Director
  • Registered Nurse
  • Certified Nurse Assistant
  • Licensed Social Worker
  • Chaplain
  • Volunteers
  • Bereavement Staff

Members of our hospice team will make regular visits to assess the needs of the patient to provide additional care or other services, no matter where the patient resides. We will care for a patient living at home, in an assisted living facility, nursing home, or our Hospice Home. JACH will work with primary caregivers, family members and/or facility staff to meet the changing needs of the patient. In addition, a nurse is on-call 24 hours a day in order to meet any urgent needs and to provide guidance and support for caregiver concerns.

Who pays for Veterans Hospice Care?

Hospice care services are paid by, Medicare, Medicaid, and by private insurance. No one is ever denied care based on their inability to pay or their ethnicity, age, gender, mental or physical status, or religion.

In addition to their proficiency on caring for those with advanced illnesses, JACH s staff and volunteers have undergone specific training, from the Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) and other local experts, that helps to identify and deal with issues that are unique to those who have provided military service.

Many veterans have experienced traumatic events that have remained dormant for years only to emerge upon facing their own mortality. Treatment in each of these cases requires special sensitivity and JACH s clinical team of physicians, nurses, chaplains, social workers, certified nurse assistants and volunteers are prepared to identify these needs and recommend specific courses of action.

Veteran to Veteran Volunteers

Who understands as well as a veteran who has been there ? JACH welcomes and trains veterans for a variety of volunteering roles including but not limited to:

Special expressions of gratitude and recognition for veterans on service, upon request, in the form of a unique Pinning Ceremony . This ceremony, performed by Veteran Volunteers, takes place where the patient resides.
