Aegis Hospice is currently seeking Veteran Volunteers for our Vet-toVet Volunteer Program! Aegis Hospice is currently a level 4 partner with We Honor Veterans, and also has a partnership with the Vietnam War Commemoration. We value and cherish all Veterans, and are looking for Veterans that can provide Veteran hospice patients and families the support and comfort when they need it the most.
We have volunteer opportunities all over the Phoenix metro area!
At Aegis Hospice, we are committed first to care of our patients and the well being of their families. With that belief at the core of everything we do, we know that it can only be achieved through the strength of the team we build.
Vet-to-Vet volunteers are needed to assist patients and families in their residences. Duties may include visiting, providing respite for caregivers, reading to a patient, watching television, or even playing 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.
Training will be included prior to 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.
Hospice volunteers are required to provide a calm presence during challenging situations, and we believe our training helps develop these skills.
To become a Vet-to-Vet volunteer, please email your information and our Volunteer Coordinator will contact you as soon as possible.
Begin a profoundly fulfilling chapter in your life with Aegis Hospice!
