About

Calling veterans! Veterans are invited to volunteer as Patient Visitors to other veterans who are on hospice care at Penn Hospice at Rittenhouse.

Duties: To provide a meaningful visit to another veteran who has been admitted to Penn Hospice. Your visit would recognize the patient's service; bring comfort and meaning to the patient and his/her family; provide an opportunity to reminisce; and bring honor and dignity to the patient's contribution to all Americans.

Requirements:

*Be a veteran of one of the branches of the US Armed Froces; have the desire to recognize and honor fellow veterans; be flexible in scheduling visits when veterans are admitted; have the ability to work collaboratively and independently with others in a fast-paced environment providing courteous and professional service.
