Honor Dying Veterans: Vet-to-Vet Volunteer

Save to Favorites

Fairview Home Care and Hospice

WHV

The Hospice Veteran Volunteer will provide services to Veteran patients and families under the direction of professional caregivers. The role of the Hospice Veteran Volunteer is to support the physical, psychological and spiritual needs of the dying patient/family, with an awareness of and support for the patient's military experiences.

The Veteran Volunteer will be paired with a hospice patient who is also a Veteran. The Veteran Volunteer will recognize the hospice patient's military service with a pin and certificate as well as provide ongoing weekly supportive visits.

The Veteran Volunteer can serve two roles:

1.) Ongoing companionship or respite support to patient and family

2.) Participate in special yearly pinning ceremonies

Due to the COVID pandemic and to lessen the possibility of exposure, volunteers must wear a surgical mask and face shield whenever in the presence of patients or family members. Masks and face shields are provided by hospice.
