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.
*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.
*Communicate with team
*Days and times will be on an "as needed" basis, depending upon the presence of veterans at the unit. When a veteran is admitted, you will be contacted to see if you could visit one or more times per week while the veteran is on our short-term care inpatient floor.
We'll work with your schedule.
