Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this thesis and the overall goal of this grant is to offer support to a community-based hospice agency by creating a position for a veterans' health consultant. The consultant will train staff to the unique care needs of veterans at the end of life by using the National Hospice-Veteran Partnership model from wehonorveterans.org. Upon the completion of an extensive literature review, this writer wrote a grant proposal for Wisteria Hospice, a local community-based hospice agency located in the City of Long Beach. After conducting a thorough funding search, the Archstone Foundation was chosen as the most compatible funding source. This funding source was selected as this foundation provides funds for professional education and training, focusing on end of life care. The actual submission of this grant for funding was not required for successful completion of this project.
