About

Veteran Volunteers have a unique ability to support other Veterans who have a life limiting illness. Silverado Hospice Volunteers help to personalize, support and enhance quality of life for each patient and their families. Volunteers bring the gift of friendship, companionship and a healing presence to our patients through regular visits.

The goal of our Veterans Program is to match Veteran patients with a hospice trained Veteran Volunteer who may have similar military background. Our patient's are terminally ill and in their final stages of life. As a Hospice Volunteer you will be visiting patients in their own homes, Silverado communities or other facilities. You'll be assigned to a patient as close to your home as possible. We need volunteers who are willing to read to our patients, hold their hand, and learn life experience by listening to the narratives and histories of hospice patients.
