Approximately 38,000 veterans reside in Weld and Larimer County, and about 25% of Pathways patients were veterans in 2018. With such a large portion of our population having sacrificed so much for our country, it is our turn to honor them and provide the best care to address the unique challenges that veterans face. 

We Honor Veterans

Pathways is proud to be a member of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO). Within this organization, in collaboration with the Department of Veterans Affairs, is a program called We Honor Veterans. As a part of this program, Pathways is able to offer veterans specialized care and recognition. Our goal is always to provide the best service to our veteran patients and their families. Each individual that comes onto our service is unique and deserves specialized care. Our veterans face a different set of challenges at the end of life that should be recognized and handled with care.

Whenever a new veteran patient comes onto our service, we take time to learn about their specific branch of service and at what era they served. Our volunteers honor them by presenting certificates, pins, and hats as an appreciation for their service to our country. 

Veteran Volunteers

Pathways is fortunate to have over 200 volunteers that assist in all areas. Whether they man the front desk, are calling families to check in, or meet with patients, they are crucial to our organization and mission. We take care to match veteran volunteers with veteran patients which creates a special bond. Veteran companionship volunteers are provided with special training to prepare them for the unique needs that our military service men and women have.

Community Involvement

Honoring veterans is not limited to the Pathways organizations. We know that there are many veterans in our community that will never walk through our doors, but they still deserve our respect and recognition. For this reason, members of our staff attend veteran-honoring events throughout the community and present them with certificates, hats, pins, and stars retrieved from American flags provided by Stars for Our Troops.

“I am part of our American flag that has flown over the USA. I can no longer fly. The sun and winds caused me to become tattered and torn. Please carry me as a reminder that you are not forgotten.”
