VETERANS VISITING VETERRANS
AseraCare Hospice is seeking veterans who are able to offer companionship visits to fellow veterans currently on hospice.
Volunteers are veterans of the US Military who visit on a regular basis with patients who are veterans. Veteran Volunteers often participate in pinning ceremonies during which the veteran patient is presented with a pin and certificate to honor their service.
Hospice volunteers describe their work as gratifying, intellectually stimulating, and emotionally meaningful. Hospices require a lot from their volunteers and value them greatly.
We serve patients throughout Milwaukee County and surrounding communities including Brookfield, Cudahy, Oak Creek, Fredonia, Grafton, Cedarburg, Pewaukee, Sussex, Watertown, Glendale, Kenosha, Racine, Sheboygan, Lake Geneva, Pleasant Prairie, St. Francis and more.
