About

LifePath Hospice in Tampa is seeking Veteran volunteers to help us provide quality end of life care for the veterans we serve.

The Vet-to-Vet Volunteer Program aims to pair recruited 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 Veteran patients and their families. We recognize that veterans have unique needs and may feel most comfortable connecting with a volunteer who is also a vet

Hospice volunteers provide emotional and practical support for patients and their families. Simply providing a compassionate presence and a listening ear can make a real difference.

1 in 4 deaths is a Veteran, and they deserve full honor and committment during this transition. Training is provided to learn how to give emotional support and companionship during this difficult time. You are guaranteed to meet extraordinary people who willshare their journey with you.

Schedules are flexible. If you have 4-6 hours a month to volunteer with our Veterans, please fill out an online application at WWW.ChaptersHealth.org under the Volunteer Tab. We look forward to having you join our Volunteer team.
