At Kindred Hospice, we value the service of veterans to our county and that's why we participate in the We Honor Veterans program, a collaboration between the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization and Department of Veterans Affairs.
Come and join us in our mission to make a difference and help improve our veteran hospice patients quality of life by providing a compassionate presence and support to them and their families in Avon, Crawfordsville, Martinsville, Lebanon, and Lafayette.
Volunteers are an essential part of our dynamic interdisciplinary team (of nurses, doctors, spiritual care providers, social workers, and home health aides). Kindred Hospice volunteers may serve in a multitude of ways, including offering patient companionship (such as reading a book, engaging in conversation, actively listening by the bedside, playing card games, singing or holding someone's hand).
A unique bond is formed when a hospice patient who is a veteran is matched with a volunteer who is also veteran. Volunteers may also provide caregiver/family respite. Volunteers who are veterans are integral to our veteran recognition program by assisting with pinning ceremonies and memorial services.
We provide volunteers with free extensive training and ongoing education and support. Qualified candidates must be at least 18 years of age, pass a background check and TB test, receive orientation/training and complete an orientation competency test.
Volunteers who are veterans have the opportunity to touch the lives of our hospice patients and families in a very special way. Contact us to learn more.
