Our Veteran-to-Veteran Volunteer Program focuses on pairing 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. Veteran volunteers can make a diļ¬€erence in a variety of ways including:

  • Providing companionship and allowing the patient to tell his "story"
  • Leading/participating in Veteran pinning ceremonies for patients and their families. Ceremonies are held in either the patient's home or in the facility where they live. Note: Due to COVID, we were forced to cancel a Pinning ceremony with 80 patients, family and friends expected. Most ceremonies are small, but Hospice Vets can work with larger groups as well as the community.
Additionally, I am seeking a self-motivated Veteran who is willing to take a leadership role with our Veteran program, yet follow the Hospice guidelines and policies. This Veteran will be confident in leading our Vet-to-Vet Cafes in nursing facilities.


If you are a compassionate Veteran who has the capability to help other Vets on their end of life journey, consider becoming hospice volunteer. Our volunteers are an important part of our hospice care team, helping improve the quality of life for our Veteran patients, their families and their caregivers.

Please call DJ at (603) 692-0220 to schedule an interview. Class days/times are scheduled to meet your needs.
