Kindred Hospice

Are you a Veteran who is looking to give back to Veterans? We invite you to help Kindred Hospice to honor our military veterans who are on hospice care. After years of serving our country they deserve to be treated with respect and dignity, and need someone who will give them time and companionship.

Some examples of activities in our program are to:

  • Visit someone and share experiences and stories
  • Make "check in" phone calls
  • Help with pinning ceremonies and distributing certificates
  • Help someone navigate Veteran benefits
Come join our Veteran-to-Veteran program. We would love to have you two hours per month, weekly, or anything in-between to fit your schedule and needs. We also recognize the impact COVID-19 has had on visitation and isolation, and are working hard to keep our volunteers and patients safe.

Please reach out if you are interested. We keep our Veterans close to our hearts and welcome those willing to support them.

Areas covered are primarily near/in Quincy and Norwood, but also can include areas near Newton, Worcester, and Holliston.

For more information or to sign up, please contact Liz Lister, Volunteer Coordinator, at Elisabeth.Lister@kindredhospicecare.com or at 617-332-0813

About Kindred Hospice

Location:

130 Rumford Avenue, Suite 211, Auburndale, MA 02466, US

Mission Statement

To provide hope, alleviate pain and suffering providing an environment of support, recognizing and respecting the uniqueness of our patients and family in their journey.

Description

Hospice is a medical specialty dedicated to the support and care of persons with limited life expectancies so that they may live as fully and comfortably as possible. The hospice philosophy focuses on maintaining the quality of the patient’s life. With its dedicated team of interdisciplinary health care professionals and volunteers, Kindred Hospice provides caring support for the patient and their family.

Volunteers are an integral part of the hospice philosophy. Hospice volunteers are there to hold a hand and listen, read or write a letter, run errands or even help out in our office. Volunteers are there to step in when a family member needs a break, and are there for the family and friends after their loved one has passed away. No matter what your skills, talents or motivation, we have the opportunity for you to help.
