Veteran to Veteran Support - Burlington County
Though you may be sheltering in place, we continue to welcome your volunteer inquiries during this challenging time. Samaritan is looking for people with big hearts and generous spirits to join our volunteer team and we are holding virtual orientation and training sessions to help prepare you for the time when we can all be together again.
Only You Understand! Veterans - YOU are needed to visit your fellow Veterans!
Visit with Samaritan's veteran patients and families in their homes or in long-term care facilities in your local community throughout Burlington, Camden, Gloucester, and Atlantic Counties. Support our patients and their family caregivers through companionship, sharing military experiences, sharing stories, attending medal ceremonies, performing life review, reading, playing cards and games, acting as a friend or neighbor.
Volunteers make visits once a week for about 2-4 hours and do not provide any hands-on care. Must be at least 18 years old. No experience or healthcare background needed. Complimentary training is provided.
We ask that all volunteers bring the following qualities to their work at Samaritan: good communication and listening skills, a nonjudgmental attitude, reliability, flexibility, and compassion.
