Hello, my Name is Mike Del Vecchio I am the Volunteer Coordinator for MetroWest Hospice. I am looking to recruit Veterans for our Veteran-to-Veteran Volunteer Program.

Our Veteran-to-Veteran Volunteer Program aims to pair recruited Veteran volunteers with our Veteran hospice patients. Veteran volunteers have the distinct ability to relate and connect with Veteran patients thereby creating a safe environment where life review and healing can occur. Once paired, they can share in their common language and experiences, forming strong relational bonds.

  • Providing companionship
  • Listening as Veteran patient reminisces
  • Helping replace lost medals
  • Reading and writing letters and email messages
  • Playing chess, cards or board games
  • Participating in pinning ceremonies
  • Calling or visiting Veterans on Veterans Day
