About

Veterans (current or retired military), especially ones who have seen combat, may have unique ways of experiencing and describing pain and considering death and dying. We think vet volunteers are in a position to offer valuable support for our veteran hospice patients. Be paired with a veteran patient for companionship--talking, sitting, reading, playing cards, watching TV, reminiscing and participating in special Veteran Recognition events.

For more information call Sharon Christopher, Volunteer Manager, at 636-735-2000 or email sharon.christopher@crossroadshospice.com.
