The Veteran-to-Veteran Volunteer Program aims to pair recruited Veteran Volunteers with hospice patients who have been identified as Veterans. Once paired with hospice patients who also have military experience, Veteran Volunteers have the unique ability to relate and connect with each patient thereby creating an environment where life review and healing may occur.

What is the importance of Veteran Volunteers?
* Volunteers are essential to the delivery of quality hospice care.
* Veterans are a part of a distinct culture with their own common language and experience.
* When Veterans interact, their common language and experience can form a strong relational bond.
* The camaraderie created between Veterans has proven to be supportive for all involved.

What activities can Veteran Volunteers do?
* Assist Veterans in reminiscing/telling life stories.
* Educate and assist patients in receiving Veteran benefits.
* Take part in pinning ceremonies or distribute certificates for Veterans Day and other recognition events.
* Assist in replacing lost medals.

We are looking for volunteers in the Topeka and surrounding areas. Service hours are extremely flexible and scheduled according to your availability and location.

The individual will work with patients and their families to provide support services as indicated by patient or family needs under the supervision of the Hospice Volunteer Coordinator.
