Caring for Our Heroes
Hospice Buffalo Honors Veterans
In addition to expert clinical care, the emotional and spiritual components of hospice care can be especially meaningful to veterans. Hospice Buffalo is honored to serve veterans by providing specialized compassionate care to meet their unique needs at end-of-life and to commemorate their sacrifices in meaningful ways. We also recognize that the family, caregivers and loved ones of veterans need our support. Since 1978, Hospice Buffalo has cared for thousands of veterans.
Hospice Buffalo’s team of healthcare professionals are specially-trained to support the difficult circumstances facing veterans with serious illness, including financial and benefit concerns, stresses and side-effects from serving in combat, and unresolved emotional and psychological issues commonly associated with military service.
