Through the We Honor Veterans Program, Haven recognizes veterans of the United States Armed Forces and honors their service by customizing care to meet their unique physical, spiritual and emotional needs.
Ways we support veterans include:
We use a military history checklist in our social work assessment for every veteran.
We provide our veteran patients with a veteran-to-veteran recognition ceremony.
We train our clinical staff to meet the unique needs of veterans, including PTSD.
We partner with local veterans organizations for referrals, education and celebrating veterans.
The Pegasus Program is specially designed to offer services to infants, children and young adults (up to age 21) and their families who are faced with a life-limiting illness.
Medical, emotional and spiritual support for infants, children, young adults, their families and others who are meaningful in the young person’s life.
An interdisciplinary team of nurses, social workers, home health aides, chaplains, physicians and volunteers provide personalized care to meet age-specific needs with a focus on pain relief and symptom management.
Education and support to school faculty and students on issues related to serious illness, loss and grief.
Grief support programs for children and teens such as Camp Safe Haven.
Haven honors the role of pets and animal companions in the lives of our patients to support and nurture their emotional and spiritual well-being.
We do this by encouraging family pet visits at our care centers, offering volunteer pet visits wherever your patient may call home, and offering the Pet Peace of Mind® program to help patients complete their end-of-life journey without worrying about their pet’s current or future needs.
Through the Pet Peace of Mind program, Haven can provide care for the animal companions that accompany patients when they begin hospice care. Sponsored by a grant from Banfield Charitable Trust, Pet Peace of Mind provides food, veterinary services, socialization, and exercise for all pets of Haven patients.
