Veterans - Volunteer In A New Way

Save to Favorites

Affinity Hospice

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 57 people are interested
Affinity Hospice

Veterans share a common language, code of conduct and code of ethics. Some flew, some sailed, some submerged, some marched, some were in trenches and others served in tanks or Military Hummers. Each command had different responsibilities, expectations, and experiences. Who understands these circumstances better than a Veteran?

Affinity Hospice is seeking Veterans and others interested in working with Veterans to volunteer as a champion and keen listener.

Opportunities include:

  • Friendly visits for support and fellowship
  • Providing a Certificate of Appreciation specific to era and branch of service
  • Attending formal or informal recognition ceremonies
    • Veterans’ Day Celebrations
    • Community Memorials
    • Pinning ceremonies
Affinity serves hospice patients in 8 counties (Bibb, Jefferson, St Clair, Talladega, Chilton, Walker, Shelby, Blount) of central Alabama.

We are a Hospice Partner, Level III, with We Honor Veterans supported by the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization.

Please contact our Volunteer Services Department for more information.

Mission Statement

Affinity Hospice's mission is to ensure all people have the opportunity to receive compassionate end of life care, which preserves dignity and provides comfort. Our goal is to provide comprehensive coordinated care to individuals with life-limiting illnesses and to support their families during the processes of death and bereavement.

Description

Affinity Hospice serves many communities in Alabama, providing medical, emotional, physical and spiritual support by the specially trained individuals of our interdisciplinary care teams. We provide comfort and security in patient's homes, wherever the patient may live. We believe in the quality of life and are committed to helping our patients to live life as alert and pain free as possible.

Affinity Hospice provides a multifaceted support system for the patient and family. Our care includes comforting care by nurses, physicians, social workers, certified nursing assistants, clergy, and volunteers. Our physicians are available 24/7, which greatly reduces or eliminates the need for emergency room visits or hospitalizations.

Our staff and volunteers support human values. Our team of volunteers offer non-medical support to the patient and their family members, providing the something "more" which may be needed to assist patients to live their final days with dignity, comfort and support.
