Honor Dying Veterans
6 people are interested
Let us remember the service of our veterans, and let us renew our national promise to fulfill our sacred obligations to our veterans and their families who sacrificed so much so that we can live fee. ~Dan Lapinski
We are seeking veterans to visit with our hospice patients who are veterans. The goal of this program is to honor people for their service and to create opportunities to share experiences. Vet to Vet volunteers may assist with:
Record stories for the Veteran History Project
Bring recognition gifts on holidays
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 twin cities metro area. Volunteer with a veteran close to home!
You do not need medical training. You just need a desire to help.

About Fairview Home Care and Hospice-Burnsville
14500 Burnhaven Drive, Burnsville, MN 55306, US
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.
