Vet to Vet Volunteer - Fox Valley
Heartland Home Health & Hospice
Veteran Volunteers have the unique ability to support other Veterans who have a life limiting illness. Heartland Hospice Volunteers help to personalize, support and enhance the quality of life of those being visited. Volunteers bring the gift of friendship to our patients through regular visits, companionship by just being there with the patient or assisting with non-medical tasks. The support through listening, sharing experiences & stories, allowing for expression of feelings and offering words of comfort is a gift. We recognize that Veterans share a special bond. The goal of our Veterans Program is to match Veteran patients with a hospice trained Veteran who may have a similar military background.
