About

Our Visit a Veteran program, provides volunteers with the unique ability to support our veteran patients who are on hospice. Brookdale Hospice, brings the gift of friendship to our patients through regular visits, our volunteers offer services such as, companionship by just being present for the patient and offering to read ,talk or assisting with non-medical tasks, emotional support through listening, sharing experiences and stories, holding a hand, giving a hug, offering words of comfort, and respite support by staying with the patient while the caregiver enjoys a moment alone to run errands, go to appointments, or simply take time to care for themselves. We recognize that veterans share a special bond among each other. The goal of our "Visit a Veteran" program is to match veteran patients with hospice-trained volunteers . All hospice volunteers are trained with helpful skills in caring for and communicating with hospice patients and their families. Volunteers in our Veterans program also receive additional training focused on a veteran's specific needs. Volunteer hours are flexible, according to your availability.
