Veterans are needed to help support other veterans who are receiving end-of-life care through our hospice. Your military background can encourage a veteran who is in the last few months of their life to share their military experience with someone who has had similar experiences. We are so grateful for your unique ability to connect with another veteran and to offer support by listening and sharing in an important part of their life. We provide training and support for this challenging yet beautiful role as a hospice volunteer.

Acacia Hospice is a not-for-profit end-of-life care agency located in Burlington County and serving patients and their families across the region. Our volunteers are treasured members of our hospice family and we are incredibly grateful for the ways they support our work. As well, we are a Level 4 We Honor Veterans Hospice with special programs geared toward supporting our veteran patients.

Mission Statement

When someone is facing a life-limiting illness, there are many challenges to overcome. When the time comes that medical treatments can no longer provide a cure and are depriving the patient of their dignity, comfort and overall quality of life, Acacia Hospice will provide the care, support and comfort you and your loved one deserve. When you choose Acacia Hospice, you are not giving up; rather, you are gifting up physical, emotional and spiritual support with comfort and dignity. This is the true treatment plan that ensures quality of life at journey’s end. Acacia Hospice is a non-profit end-of-life care agency that relies on community gifts to provide specialized programming to our patients including Music & Memory, We Honor Veterans, and complimentary therapies.
