Veteran-to-Veteran Volunteer Program
Silverado Hospice has joined We Honor Veterans, a program of National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization and the Department of Veterans Affairs, to empower hospice professionals and volunteers to meet the unique needs of terminally ill veterans.
The goal of our Veteran-to-Veteran Volunteer Program is to pair Veteran volunteers with hospice patients who have been identified as Veterans. Once paired with hospice patients who also have military experience, Veteran Volunteers have the unique ability to relate and connect with each patient creating an environment where life review and a positive connection may occur.
What is the importance of Veteran Volunteers?
- Volunteers are essential to the delivery of quality hospice care
- Veterans are part of a distinct culture with their own common language and experiences
- When Veterans interact, their common language and experiences can form a strong relational bond
- The camaraderie created between Veterans has proven to be supportive for all involved
What activities can Veteran Volunteers do?
- Assist Veterans in reminiscing / telling life stories
- Take part in pinning ceremonies or distribute certificates to honor Veteran’s service
- Provide companionship and support to those without a supportive system

It is our mission to affirm the cycle of life by enhancing the quality of living for those at the end of life. The Silverado standard is to care compassionately for patients and families and to empower those we serve to have quality of life options that afford them comfort and dignity.
Silverado Hospice honors the value of each life by empowering the patient and family to make supported choices in end-of-life care, enhancing comfort, relieving suffering and supporting effective grieving. We believe that Hospice patients have the right to continue life to the fullest extent possible according to their circumstances, and in fostering opportunities for growth and fulfillment. We further recognize patients and families decision-making rights in relation to continuing medical treatments and their right to withdraw treatment whose benefits are outweighed by their burdens. Silverado believes in equal opportunity and non-discrimination for our clients, our associates, and our community.
