ORGANIZATION: accentCARE Hospice of Texas (formerly Texas Home Health Hospice)

AccentCare Hospice of Texas (formerly Texas Home Health Hospice) in Longview is proud to be a partner with We Honor Veterans, a national partnership between the VA and the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO). We Honor Veterans is a pioneering program focused on respectful inquiry, compassionate listening and grateful acknowledgement to our veterans.

Are you a Veteran or on Active Duty with time and a desire to give back? YOU can increase the quality of life of veterans and their families who are affected by a terminal diagnosis.

We are currently training volunteers to be...

Direct Care Patient Volunteers: Visit patients in their homes or facilities to provide companionship and support in the Longview/Tyler/Marshall area. Veteran volunteers are always in demand for our veteran patient population in the northeast Texas area, and this need will continue to grow.

Vigil/Respite Volunteers: offer your comfort and presence to patients during the last hours of their lives or provide relief to patient caregivers for a few hours.

Bereavement Phone Call Volunteers: After a loved one has passed away, AccentCare Hospice is committed to checking in with our families to see how they are doing on a regular basis. Make phone calls that offer support and comfort to a family grieving a loss. Calls can be made from your own home.

Circle of Care Phone Call Volunteers: check in with our patients’ families before the weekend to make sure they have all of their needs met (medications, supplies, etc.) Calles can be made from your own home.

If any of these opportunities sound interesting to you, contact our Manager of Volunteer Services, Shannon Trest at shannontrest@txhha.com to learn more.
