Do you enjoy talking to people? Do you like to make someone feel good about themselves, or just want that bond with another vet, this is the right program for you. Grace Hospice is a partner in the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization's "We Honor Veterans Program". We actively seek to provide our Veteran patients with the companionship of their fellow Veterans with whom they have a special bond. Being a Hospice Volunteer is an opportunity to give another person love in their neediest moments, to lift them up and shine a light into their darkness. There is no other volunteer opportunity like it.
Volunteering with Grace is flexible and can be tailored to your availability. Usually Volunteers visit their patient once a week for about an hour. It is the highlight of many Volunteers' weeks!
Training is provided and the background/ua/2 step TB tests are all paid for by Grace Hospice.
If you would like more information about volunteering with Grace Hospice, we'd love to hear from you!

For each employee to treat every patient as their own treasured loved one, providing care that affords a quality of life that outweighs quantity of days, and supports caregivers as their hearts find healing.
Hospice is a philosophy of caring for patients whose medical conditions are not responding to treatment or for those patients who choose not to seek aggressive medical care at the end stage of life. It is a program for patients who are considered terminal and are expected to live six months or less if the disease follows its natural course, although many patients outlive this time frame. The hospice philosophy focuses on comfort care not curative care. The goal of hospice care is for the patient to remain as comfortable and pain-free as possible in their own home or the home of a loved one through the end of life. Hospice care can also be provided in a long-term care facility or an assisted living facility.
