Did you know that…

  • Hospices often provide bereavement care in the wake of natural disasters, opioid overdoses, and mass casualty events?
  • Hospices work with the Department of Veterans Affairs through the We Honor Veterans program to honor Veterans at the end of life?
  • Hospices partner with Pet Peace of Mind to ensure that pets of hospice patients are well cared for, and re-homed when necessary?
  • Hospices are required to utilize volunteers, who provide compassionate care and assistance to patients and their caregivers?

Refreshments, music therapy demonstrations, and animal companionship will be provided.

Please join NHPCO and the National Coalition as they reach out to Congressional staff and help inform the public about the multitude of services hospice provides.  Note: ID/security check is required to enter the Rayburn House Office Building.
