We are seeking Veterans to visit with hospice Veteran patients. Share experiences with each other, provide support, and help us honor them during military holidays/remembrances, etc. You can also help with pinning ceremonies. We are looking for Veterans as the camaraderie between Veterans has proven to be supportive for all.

You can visit close to your home- free parking and mileage reimbursement. The time commitment is flexible as we respect you and your schedule.

Each facility has their rules and regulations regarding covid 19, that each volunteer must follow.

Training is provided. Background checks, 2 step TB tests, and CPR certification are required (expenses covered). Visits are done with your own car or if the home is on the busline.

Help support another Veteran!
