We Honor Vets

We are seeking persons that have served in the US Military and ROTC students 18 and older to perform a brief but very meaningful bedside pinning for Veterans on our Hospice Service.

The pinning ceremony is a way to honor and thank the veteran for their service and sacrifices to our country.
This will be done bedside in the Veterans home, nursing home, assisted living facility or wherever the patient calls home.
We start with the Pledge of allegiance, thank you poem, pinning and certificate is given to the patient.

Volunteer must agree to background check, TB screening, training and references.

Our program stresses human values that go beyond the physical needs of the patient and we strive to ensure that our patients spend their final days in dignity and comfort.

We depend on our volunteers to help us give the full circle of care that our patients and their families need during this challenging time.
