WesleyLife Hospice is looking for active or retired military men and women to volunteer with our patients who are veterans. Our veteran to veteran program aims to provide companionship and recognition to our veterans. We are looking to fill two types of volunteer roles:

Companionship visits: Volunteers are essential to hospice and when we can pair veterans together it can enhance the special bond that volunteers form with patients. We encourage weekly visits.

Veteran Pinning Ceremonies: As a part of the "We Honor Veterans" program we hold a special ceremony to thank our veteran patients for their service.

A background check, 2 Step TB test and hospice training is required.

If you are interested in learning more about this opportunity please contact Sarah Underwood, Volunteer Coordinator, at 515.661.4450 or sunderwood@wesleylife.org.

Mission Statement

Guided by Christian compassion, we support the independence, health and well-being of older adults wherever they call home.

Description

We believe everyone should have the opportunity to live a life of continued growth, experience, engagement, and meaning, regardless of physical, social, or economic circumstances. Aging is an opportunity. The second half of life can be the best half!

Our comprehensive network of services is designed to fulfill the wishes of older adults to remain independent and active wherever they choose to live. Because we have a vision of transforming the aging experience, we focus not on limitations, but on possibilities.

We strive to be the thread that leads families to better solutions and binds them with the strength and support they need to maintain loving and healthy relationships. At WesleyLife, we celebrate a spirit for living!
