November is Hospice and Palliative Care Month
A time to raise awareness about the high-quality care that helps patients and family caregivers live as fully as possible.
Did you know?
Hospice care is for individuals of all ages facing a life-limiting illness.
Palliative care focuses on relief from the symptoms, pain and stress of serious illness, and can be provided along with curative treatment.November is also a Time to Honor Veterans
There are 369,149 Veterans in Minnesota. Education about Veterans benefits and their health issues at the end of life are needed to support our Veterans.
MNHPC collaborates with the VA Midwest Healthcare Network to provide support for over 50 hospice providers across Minnesota that have created a We Honor Veterans program, a very special project that honors our Veterans at the end of their lives.
MNHPC supports hospice programs to develop their We Honor Veterans programs; provides education on specific health concerns and issues that affect Veterans; and trains providers on Veterans benefits.
