Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
Are you a Veteran? Do you have a few hours each week to spend with a fellow Veteran on hospice?
If so, Grace Hospice is looking for you! At Grace we understand and value the bond that Veterans have with each other. We realize that it is a unique bother/sisterhood that non-veterans are unlikely to fully understand.
Our Vet to Vet program places Veterans with Veteran Hospice patients to provide support, understanding and friendship during end of life care.
Hospice is designed to provide comfort care as well as emotional support and spiritual support in the final phase of a terminal illness. Grace Hospice ensures that our veteran patients will spend their final days of their journey in comfort and with dignity.
Volunteers receive training related to the core principles of hospice and our Veteran to Veteran services all in order to promote the best outcome for patient and volunteer alike.
Please anticipate making at least a year commitment as a Grace Hospice volunteer.
