AHHC is recognized as a Hospice-Veteran Partnership (HVP) with the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO)
We Honor Veterans (WHV) Program

 

The Association for Home & Hospice Care of North Carolina (AHHC) is recognized as a Hospice-Veteran Partnership (HVP) with the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO) We Honor Veterans (WHV) Program. HVPs are coalitions of hospices, Veteran Affairs representatives and other community organizations serving Veterans. The purpose of an HVP is to improve end-of-life care for Veterans and we think that your organization might be interested in:

- Increasing awareness and knowledge about Veterans’ end-of-life care needs and options
- Strengthening relationships between hospices, VA programs and community organizations
- Improving Veterans’ access to hospice and palliative care across all sites and levels of care

The Hospice-Veteran Partnership is part of a national network of HVPs established through the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO). For more information about Hospice-Veteran Partnerships please visit this NHPCO We Honor Veterans Webpage

We invite all those who are interested to sign up for our AHHC HVP email distribution list to receive future HVP announcements and updates, including future AHHC HVP webinars/calls and educational events.
