Beacon Hospice is looking for Veteran Volunteers to help provide companionship with people who have served our country and are now approaching the end of life. We understand Veteran patients have different needs and we try to match Veteran Volunteers with them. Veteran Volunteers have the unique ability to relate and connect with Veteran patients and their families. Volunteers make a difference in several ways, including but not limited to:

- Offering Companionship
- Reading Books or Writing Letters
- Playing Chess, Cards, Bingo, Board Games, etc.
- Watching TV or Listening to Music

Beacon Hospice will train all who are interested in helping others find some comfort in their final days. You can give as little as an hour a week, or as much time as you would like.

YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN SOMEONE'S LIFE!!
