Homeland Hospice

Homeland Hospice is privileged to serve Military Veterans and is associated with the "We Honor Veterans Program." To support our veterans, Homeland understands that we must understand the unique physical, mental, emotional, social, and spiritual end-of-life challenges that many veterans face. We must understand how to specifically address those challenges to provide quality care and our Veteran volunteers play a key role in Homeland Hospice being able to do that.

Homeland Hospice offers several opportunities for Veterans to serve Veterans:

* VETERAN COMPANIONSHIP - Veteran Volunteers have the unique ability to relate and connect with Veteran patients and their families. Through this companion relationship patients and volunteer tend to share in the camaraderie of the military experience.

*VETERAN APPRECIATION - Homeland Hospice staff also like to show their respect to, and share their thanks with, patient Veterans through pinning ceremonies. Veteran Volunteers are welcomed and encouraged to be part of these ceremonies as we publicly acknowledge the military service and sacrifices made by the Veteran and his/her family.

*SITTING WITH VETERAN AT THE END OF LIFE - come along side a Veteran who is actively dying. Volunteers may be by the bedside of a person who would otherwise die alone, or they may be present with family, simply being there when the family needs a break, a hug or someone to talk to.

Please contact us if you feel that you are being drawn to serve fellow Veterans in any one of these ways. Volunteers can select where they are comfortable serving - near home or work, personal homes or facilities.

Thank you for your service and for the freedom and protection that you have provided to us!

*The Homeland Hospice office is located in Harrisburg, but serves 14 counties in South Central PA, including - Adams, Cumberland, Dauphin, Lancaster, Lebanon, Northumberland, Perry, Schuylkill, York. We can "match" you with a veteran in your home or work community.
* CDC guidelines are being followed and training is being provided regarding how to conduct safe visits.
