About

If you value the contributions of those who have served our country as members of the US Armed Forces, you can express that appreciation in a real way by helping us serve hospice patients who are veterans. If you are:

  • A veteran;
  • Active or Reserve with any branch of US Armed Forces;
  • A spouse, parent or other family of veteran or active/reserve member of US Armed Forces, or;
  • Anyone with a special connection to the men and women who have served,
you are needed! As a Veterans Visiting Veterans volunteer you can bring peace and resolution to dying veterans in your northeast Ohio community in many ways including making regular visits to a veteran patient; listening to his/her stories; working with our staff in helping a veteran access records or benefits; and/or joining with our staff for a special recognition ceremony for those veterans who choose it.

UH Hospice is a We Honor Veterans partner seeking volunteers with an understanding of military culture who can assist us in best identifying and serving the needs of veterans who are in their final stage of life.
