Grace Healthcare Services is a Hospice organization that cares for patients throughout NJ. Veterans at the end of life. Volunteers are an essential component of this care.
WHY A NEED FOR VETERAN VOLUNTEERS?
-Veteran Volunteers have the unique ability to relate and connect to patients who have served our country.
-Veterans share a common bond and code of conduct.
-The camaraderie that exists between Veterans has proven to be a great support for the Veterans we care for.
As a member of the New Jersey Hospice and Palliative Care Organization, Grace Healthcare has made a unique commitment to all Veterans by participating in a partnership with the US Department of Veteran Affairs. This is known as the, "We Honor Veterans" initiative. The We Honor Veterans initiative recognizes that only a small percentage of Veterans are a part of the VA Healthcare system and therefore aren't always aware of benefits that they might be entitled to. As part of this venture, our goal is to raise awareness within the veteran community.
Once a Veteran comes on service with us, our priority is to give them the recognition they deserve as well as help to insure that all benefits they may be entitled to are accessed. We believe that involves interaction with Veteran volunteers who have had similar life experiences.
As a Grace Volunteer you will be given a choice of assignment depending on your desire to provide bedside visits, or office based assignments or to become part of our Veteran Speaker Committee. Please help us honor our Veterans by giving them the gift of your time.
If you are interested or have questions please contact the Grace Healthcare Services Volunteer Department at 732-225-4100 ext. 138 to inquire about the Veteran-to-Veteran Volunteer Program. We look forward to hearing from you!
