The coronavirus crisis has nearly halted the local economy — including media advertising. That means local, independent news organizations such as ours must fight for our own survival while continuing to provide critical news and information as a public service during this unprecedented situation.

The nonprofit VNA Community Healthcare & Hospice, which serves 35 towns and has office locations in Guilford and Hamden, has become a national partner of We Honor Veterans, a pioneering campaign developed by the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization in collaboration with the Department of Veterans Affairs.
The We Honor Veterans campaign provides tiered recognition to organizations that demonstrate a systematic commitment to improving care for veterans.
Partners can assess their ability to serve veterans and, using resources provided as part of the campaign, integrate best practices for providing end-of-life care to veterans into their organization. The resources of We Honor Veterans focus on respectful inquiry, compassionate listening, and grateful acknowledgment, coupled with veteran-centric education of health care staff caring for these individuals.
By recognizing the unique needs of veterans who are facing a life-limiting illness, VNA Community Healthcare & Hospice is better able to accompany and guide veterans and their families toward a more peaceful ending. And in cases where there might be some specific needs related to the veteran’s military service, combat experience or other traumatic events, VNA Community Healthcare & Hospice will find appropriate tools to assist.
“We thank VNA Community Healthcare & Hospice for partnering in the We Honor Veterans program,” said National Hospice & Palliative Care Organization President and CEO Edo Banach. “We Honor Veterans partners are committed to providing quality veteran-centric care to the veteran patients they serve. They understand how a veteran’s military service, combat experience, or other traumatic events, could impact their end-of-life experience.”
