Veteran to Veteran (V2V) volunteers have the honor of supporting a military veteran nearing end of life. V2V volunteers share a special connection to our patients that only those with military experiences can offer. V2V volunteers visit military veteran patients and engage in life review, companionship, and caregiver respite. They may also take part in special pinning ceremonies for veterans acknowledging their service and sacrifice.

Interim HealthCare San Diego Hospice provides services to our patients wherever they call home, whether it be a private residence or a skilled nursing facility, throughout all of San Diego County. Our mission is to give patient and family empowered care, preserving dignity and providing comfort.

Volunteers DO NOT provide any hands-on care (i.e. changing an adult brief, feeding a patient, dispensing medications, etc.), you only provide companionship and socialization.

NO previous hospice experience is necessary!! We provide a comprehensive orientation as well as ongoing education and support.

Per Medicare guidelines all volunteers must pass a drug screen, 2 step TB test, and background check (at no cost) in addition to orientation classes.
