We are seeking veterans to visit with our hospice patients who are veterans. The goal of this program is to honor people for their service and to create opportunities to share experiences. Vet to Vet volunteers may assist with:
- Pinning ceremonies
- Record stories for the Veteran History Project
- Bring recognition gifts on holidays
- Provide companionship
- Assist families in applying for a presidential memorial certificate
Patients are located in their private home and facilities throughout the Twin Cities (south) metro area. You will be strategically matched with patients close to your home, and you get to choose which patients you want to visit. The time you spend volunteering each week is flexible and will be scheduled directly with patients and/or caregivers.
No medical experience is necessary. Health screening, background check, and training provided at no cost to you.
For more information or to fill out an application, please go to: https://www.fairview.org/overarching-care/home-care-and-hospice/volunteering-at-fairview-hospice
We'll work with your schedule.
