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. These volunteers can offer valuable support for our veteran hospice patients. Be paired with a veteran patient for companionship -- talking, sitting, reading, playing cards, watching TV, and reminiscing. You can also provide meaningful support by participating in special Veteran Recognition events held throughout the year for individual patients and families as well as larger annual events scheduled around Veterans Day.

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