Cornerstone Hospice & Palliative Care has several opportunities available for compassionate, empathetic veterans who would like to dedicate their time by serving other veterans within the community. As a fellow veteran, your experience is individually different, yet uniquely similar to that of our veteran patients and their families.
Cornerstone honors the service of our veteran patients through the 'Cornerstone SALUTES!’ program. We proudly conduct a tailor-made pinning ceremony for our veteran patients, which is performed by one of our trained veteran volunteer's. Our veteran volunteers can also take part in such opportunities as Honor Flights, life enrichment interviews for the Veterans History Project, one-on-one companionship, and light errands.
