Our "Visit a Veteran" program provides volunteers with the unique ability to support our veteran patients who are on hospice. Brookdale Hospice brings the gift of friendship to our patients through regular visits by volunteers. Our volunteers offer services such as companionship by just being present for the patient, reading, talking or assisting with non-medical tasks. Our volunteers also provide emotional support through listening, sharing experiences and stories, holding a hand, giving a hug, offering words of comfort and respite by staying with the patient while a caregiver enjoys a moment alone. We recognize that veterans share a special bond among each other. The goal of our "Visit a Veteran" program is to match veteran patients with hospice-trained volunteers who are also veterans. All hospice volunteers are trained with helpful skills in caring for and communicating with hospice patients and their families. Volunteer hours are flexible, according to your availability.
