Veteran Volunteers Needed! Trinity Health of New England at home cares for Veterans at the end of life. Volunteers are an essential component of this care.
WHY A NEED FOR VETERAN VOLUNTEERS?
-Veteran Volunteers have the unique ability to relate and connect to patients who have served our country. -Veterans share a common bond and code of conduct. -The camaraderie that exists between Veterans has proven to be a great support for the Veterans we care for.
The We Honor Veterans initiative recognizes that only a small percentage of Veterans are a part of the VA Healthcare system and therefore aren't always aware of benefits that they might be entitled to. As part of this venture, our goal is to raise awareness within the veteran community. Once a Veteran comes on service with us, our priority is to give them the recognition they deserve as well as help to insure that all benefits they may be entitled to are accessed. We believe that involves interaction with Veteran volunteers who have had similar life experiences. As a Volunteer you will be given a choice of assignment depending on your desire to provide bedside visits, or office based. Please help us honor our Veterans by giving them the gift of your time.
