Gentiva Hospice is looking for US Military Veteran (or actively serving military) volunteers (ages 18 and up) to help provide support to Veterans with life limiting conditions and their caregivers. Veteran-to-Veteran Support Volunteers provide a bond to other veterans like no one else can. America's Veterans have done everything asked of them in their mission. It is our mission to serve those that have served us. We believe that it is never to late to give them a hero's welcome. That is why Gentiva Hospice implemented a "We Honor Veterens" Program. This program includes a pining ceremony, certificate of service and our appreciation for everything they have done for us and our country. How you serve and how often is completely up to you! Here are a few examples of how our Veteran-to Veteran Support Volunteers Serve:

* Provide Companionship and emotional support to fellow Veterans and their Caregivers
*Provide Respite (sitting with Veteran/patient) while the caregiver runs errands
*Run errands for the Veteran and their caregiver (grocery shopping and other errands as needed)
*Assist Veterans in enrolling and accessing VA benefits
*Participate in our Veterans recognition and pinning ceremonies
*Assisting with replacing of lost medals and awards.

You choose how you want to serve and how often.
