About

Thank you for your service.

Optimal Hospice - Fresno is proud to partner with the National Hospice & Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO) and the Veteran's Administration to provide customized care for our nations veterans.

As a Vet-to-Vet volunteer, you will visit veterans currently facing a terminal illness on hospice. We believe there is a special bond between veterans that creates special moments.

Vet-to-Vet volunteers will:

  • Be a friend to a veteran patient
  • Listen to patient stories
  • Share your own story of service
  • Provide comfort and support to veterans

We will work with your schedule! Optimal Hospice will work with your schedule to ensure volunteering is something to enjoy. The patients you see will be located at a home, assisted living and/or skilled nursing facility that is convenient for you to visit in Fresno and Madera County. All volunteers are non-medical and do not provide direct patient care.

Optimal Hospice does provide reimbursement for travel mileage when visiting patients.
