Are you a veteran? Would you like an opportunity to make the difference in another veterans' life? We are looking for veterans to provide end of life care to our patients. The veteran would be there to be a companion to the patient and help them with life reviews if they wanted to leave that behind. Nobody understands a veteran like another veteran so we do try to pair veteran with veteran. We don't want anyone dying alone and you could become a quiet presence at the end of another veterans life. Not only by volunteering for our patients but you also become a powerful advocacy about hospice care when talking to your friends and family. Every act of kindness or service to our patients is equally important and our volunteers are the key to good patient care.

Mission Statement

Our Mission...serving people with compassion and dignity. At Good Shepherd Hospice, we believe that health care is more than just a diagnosis and a treatment. It's a daily exercise in making this moment...this today...the very best it can be. We're here to help our patients achieve that goal - physically, mentally, spiritually...and for whatever that means individually. We believe that in the passing of a person’s life, there are also extraordinary opportunities for compassion, reconciliation, spiritual healing, and renewal. Our Volunteers play a vital role in our Hospice program. From working in the office, to creating special projects at home, to visiting to provide companionship and ease loneliness, Good Shepherd Hospice Volunteers make special moments happen again and again for the patients and families we serve.
