The Veteran-to-Veteran Volunteer Program aims to pair recruited veteran volunteers with hospice patients who have been identified as veterans. Veteran volunteers are important because they are able to form a camaraderie with veteran patients that can help eliminate the stoicism and secrecy that veteran patients often develop from having served in the armed forces.

Veteran Volunteers can help by:

· Assist veterans in reminiscing/telling life stories

· Educate and assist patients in receiving veteran benefits

· Take part in pinning ceremonies or distribute certificates for Veteran’s Day and other recognition events

· Friendly visits

· Improve communication within families

· Assist in replacing lost medals

· Provide respite for caregivers

· Read to patients

Veteran volunteers have the unique ability to relate and connect with each veteran patient allowing them to become an essential piece in the delivery of quality end-of-life care.
