Are you a military veteran who would like to provide companionship and support to military veterans on our hospice service? Or perhaps you have time to be involved in special events honoring Veterans; if so, please consider volunteering with Aegis Hospice.

Veteran Volunteers have the unique ability to relate and connect with Veteran hospice patients and families, offering support and comfort when they need it the most. Volunteers visit patients and families where they live. They share military stories, provide respite for caregivers, read to patients, watch television, or even play games.

To volunteer for Aegis Hospice, you must be at least 16 years old. A background check is required, along with a current negative TB screening. A current CPR certification is also needed.

Aegis will include training before volunteer placement. Our training prepares all volunteers for the challenges of working with patients and their caregivers and families. Topics include volunteer responsibilities, veteran to veteran visits, communication, grief and loss, the medical aspects of end-of-life, and the psychosocial and spiritual aspects of care.


To become a Veteran-to-Veteran volunteer, please email your information, and our Volunteer Coordinator will contact you as soon as possible.
