ORGANIZATION: Masonicare Home Health & Hospice

  • 14 people are interested

Volunteers are essential to the delivery of quality hospice care and Masonicare Home Health & Hospice’s Veteran-to-Veteran volunteer program builds on that by pairing Veteran patients with a Veteran volunteer who shares their common language and experience. Veteran volunteers support Veterans who are terminally ill by providing companionship through conversation, facilitating life review, and recognizing and honoring their service. Veteran volunteers may also participate in recognition and pinning ceremonies and assist in replacing lost medals.

Masonicare offers a free, thorough training for all of our volunteers. Veteran volunteers receive additional training focused on specific Veteran needs. Training classes are held throughout the year. Once trained, volunteers visit patients in their local area and set their own level of commitment based on their available time. Volunteers also receive ongoing support through continuing education and regular communication with the volunteer coordinator.

Volunteers are needed across the state. Contact us today to find out more about how you can help fulfill the mission to serve America’s Veterans at a critical time in their lives.

Masonicare Home Health and Hospice is proud to be a member of the We Honor Veterans program, a collaborative project between the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization and the Veteran’s Administration.
