  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.

Gentiva Hospice is looking for US Military Veteran (or actively serving military) volunteers (ages 18 and up) to help provide support to Veterans with life limiting conditions and their caregivers. Veteran-to-Veteran Support Volunteers provide a bond to other Veterans like no one else can. America's Veterans have done everything asked of them in their mission. It is our mission is to serve those that have served us. We believe that it is never too late to give them a hero's welcome home! How you serve and how often is completely up to you! Here are a few examples of how our Veteran-to-Veteran Support Volunteers serve:

  • Provide companionship and emotional support to fellow Veterans and their caregivers
  • Provide respite (sitting with the Veteran/patient) while the caregiver run errands
  • Run errands for the Veteran and their caregiver (grocery shopping and other errands as needed)
  • Assisting Veterans in enrolling and accessing VA benefits
  • Participate in our Veteran recognition and pinning ceremonies
  • Assisting with replacing of lost medals and awards
You choose how you want to serve and how often.

Our patients and families need help now more than ever during these uncertain times. Our volunteers are here to help meet non-medical needs of our patients, their families, and our Gentiva staff. We are called to be a light in the darkness.
