We Honor Veterans is a program of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO) in collaboration with the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). Hudson Valley Hospice is proud to have achieved Level 4, the highest level in the program, through our dedication to providing care and support to our veterans.

When a patient reaches the end stages of an illness or disease, hospice offers palliative care to help control pain and reduce anxiety. We improve quality of life and time spent with loved ones.
Emotional and Spiritual Support
Hospice care provides emotional and spiritual support to patients and families, including grief and bereavement resources. You and your loved ones don’t have to face these challenges alone.
Medical Care Management
Hospice manages medical care, in-home visits from care providers, acquiring medical supplies, and end-of-life planning.
Respect for the Patient and Family Wishes
Hospice strives to provide the highest quality end-of-life care so that our patients may live with comfort and dignity. Every family is on a different journey, and we acknowledge and respect your decisions and plans. Our goal is to make this difficult time as easy as possible.
We improve quality of life by relieving patients and their loved ones of much of the stress that comes with providing end-of-life care. Families can focus on being together and sharing memories.
