Together with the Veterans Administration and the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization, Caring Hospice is committed to providing quality end of life care to our Veterans and addressing their unique needs through the We Honor Veterans program.

About

The mission of Caring Hospice Services is to coordinate patient and family services while respecting their choices, values and beliefs.

Caring Hospice Services has patients in communities throughout Southern New Jersey who are in need of friendly visits from individuals willing to give a few hours per month. Our patients reside in private homes, nursing home and assisted-living facilities throughout Atlantic, Burlington, Camden, Cumberland, Gloucester and Salem Counties.

Veteran Volunteers are needed to provide care, companionship and hope to our patients and their families. Veteran Volunteers are crucial to fulfilling the hospice mission, and can serve in a wide variety of capacities:

  • Assist Veteran patients in reminiscing/telling life stories.
  • Educate and assist patients in receiving Veteran benefits.
  • Take part in pinning ceremonies or distribute certificates for Veterans Day and other recognition events.
  • Assist in replacing lost medals.

Individualized training is provided free of charge without the need to travel to the Mount Laurel office. In keeping with Medicare requirements, background and medical checks are part of the training process.
