Avalon Hospice is looking for a Veteran Hospice Volunteer that is willing to make a difference in the lives of other Veterans. Veteran volunteers are a very valuable part of our care team and at Avalon Hospice we are developing a We Honor Veteran program which would have Veteran-to-Veteran volunteer programs. The Veteran volunteer program would also make an effor to replace lost medals and awards and would provide emotional support and bereavement counseling. Avalon Hospice supports the volunteers and appreciates the important role they place in hospice care. We prepare volunteers with specific training and it takes no advanced medical training or great commitment. Some volunteer opportunities include sharing a story, sending a card, listen/read/sing, making gifts for Veterans, run errands or perform light housekeeping for Veterans, administrative office support if needed, make phone calls, and attend community events.
