  • Memorial Day remembranceMemorial Day is often associated with the start of summer, but it is important for us to take a few moments to honor and remember those who have died in military service to our nation. Paradigm Health is pleased and honored to both plan and participate in activities that recognize veterans and their service.  

    Paradigm Health is partnering with the We Honor Veterans Program, a national hospice provider awareness campaign conducted by the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO) in collaboration with the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). We Honor Veterans recognizes the unique needs of America’s Veterans and their families and empowers hospices and community organizations to meet the unique needs of America’s Veterans and their families by offering guidance and resources focused on respectful inquiry, compassionate listening, and grateful acknowledgment so that Veterans can be guided toward a more peaceful ending. Join us in serving those who have served us. 

    Our goal at Paradigm Health is to partner with veterans to:  

    • Provide a high quality of care for Veterans 
    • Develop and strengthen partnerships with the VA and VA organizations 
    • Increase access to hospice and palliative care for Veterans  
    • Collaborate with other hospice providers to best meet the needs of Veterans  

    Paradigm Health is pleased and honored to both plan and participate in activities that recognize veterans and their service. One opportunity to recognize veterans is Memorial Day, May 25th, 2020. Memorial Day honors service members who have died in military service to the nation.  

    We hope that you will take a few moments to pay tribute to our fallen heroes and offer a few ideas to help celebrate Memorial Day 2020:
