Let us remember the service of our veterans, and let us renew our national promise to fulfill our sacred obligations to our veterans and their families who sacrificed so much so that we can live fee. ~Dan Lapinski
We are seeking veterans to visit with our hospice patients who are veterans. The goal of this program is to honor people for their service and to create opportunities to share experiences. Vet to Vet volunteers may assist with:
- Pinning ceremonies
- Record stories for the Veteran History Project
- Bring recognition gifts on holidays
- Provide companionship
- Assist families in applying for a presidential memorial certificate
Visits are typically 1-4 hours, every 1-2 weeks. Our patients are located throughout the Metro area and you can choose to visit veterans close to your home.
You do not need medical training. You just need a desire to help.

.Mission: Our compassionate, qualified teams partner with community healthcare providers to deliver consistently exceptional care for patients and their families.
When life expectancy is limited, Accentcare Fairview Hospice staff and volunteers will help patients and caregivers focus on improving the quality of their remaining days. Hospice provides medical, emotional, social and spiritual care. We bring these services to the familiar setting of patient's own homes whenever possible. The same kind of care may also be given at a long-term care site, a group home, an assisted living site or a residential hospice.
