Reminisce with Military Veterans-Veteran to Veteran visits
4 people are interested
Military veterans are needed in the Chisago City, Forest Lake, North Branch, Rush City, Pine City, Hugo, White Bear Lake and Blaine area to visit with our hospice patients who are veterans. The We Honor Veterans program honors people for their service and creates opportunities to share experiences. Fairview Hospice is a level 4 We Honor Veterans Partner.
Vet to Vet volunteers may assist with:
- Pinning ceremonies
- Record stories for the Veteran History Project
- Bring recognition gifts on holidays
- Provide companionship
- Assist families in applying for a presidential memorial certificate
Visits are typically 1-4 hours, every 1-2 weeks. Our patients are located throughout the Metro area and you can choose to visit people close to your home. We provide training for all of our volunteers. Volunteers do not provide personal cares and medical training is not needed. You just need a desire to help.

Our Mission: We offer an exceptional experience for patients and families focused on their physical, emotional and spiritual well-being.
When life expectancy is limited, Fairview Hospice staff and volunteers will help patients and caregivers focus on improving the quality of their remaining days. Hospice provides medical, emotional, social and spiritual care. We bring these services to the familiar setting of patient's own homes whenever possible. The same kind of care may also be given at a long-term care site, a group home, an assisted living site or a residential hospice.
We'll work with your schedule.
