The Alternative Hospice Dream Catcher Program is designed to help end-of-life wishes come true whenever possible. Our care team asks our patients if they have end-of-life wishes or desires they would like to fulfill. Wishes have ranged from fishing trips to attending concerts and can even be as simple as a request for a meal from the patient’s favorite restaurant. All wishes must be consistent with the mission and philosophy of Alternative Hospice.
We Honor Veterans
As a We Honor Veterans Partner, we are committed to honor our veterans. At admission to Alternative Hospice, we ask about our patients’ veteran status. We then contact their family and schedule a We Honor Veterans ceremony. Our wonderful volunteer veterans and families are invited to attend as well as Alternative Hospice staff and facility staff. At the ceremony we present our veteran with a certificate, a medal and a patriotic lap blanket handmade by volunteers. Our patients and families are touched by these meaningful ceremonies.
In addition, our veterans have recorded their stories in partnership with the Missouri Veterans History Project. This project records memories of Missouri’s military veterans to be archived with the Library of Congress.
