Military Veteran volunteers are needed to provide honor, camaraderie and companionship to our hospice patients who have served our country through military service.

Caring Hospice of Connecticut has patients throughout Western Connecticut who are in need of friendly visits from individuals willing to give few hours a month. Out patients reside in private homes, skilled nursing and assisted living facilities throughout Fairfield County.

Veteran Volunteers are crucial in fulfilling the hospice mission, in a wide variety of ways:

  • Provide a listening ear and assist Veteran patients in reminiscing/telling life stories.
  • Take part in pinning ceremonies, distribute certificates of appreciation for Veteran service and observed holidays.
  • Assist in replacing lost medals or other recognition ribbons.
Individualized training is provided free of charge without the need to travel to our Stamford office. In keeping Medicare requirements, background and medical checks are part of the training.

Mission Statement

Caring Hospice is a unique, holistic and cost effective service designed to meet the social, emotional, spiritual and physical needs of our patients and families as they face terminal illness. Our mission is to coordinate patient and family services while respecting their choices, values and beliefs.

Description

"Life is for living." Caring Hospice has been providing hospice services since 1997. We are passionate about our mission to bring comfort and relief into the lives of those who need it most.
