Veteran to Veteran Volunteer
Please visit the new page to apply.
Veteran volunteers have the unique ability to relate and connect with veteran patients
allowing them to become essential in the delivery of quality end-of-life care.
WHAT WE DO
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 military.
HOW VETERAN VOLUNTEERS HELP
* Assist veterans in reminiscing/telling life stories
* Friendly visits
* Take part in pinning ceremonies or distribute certificates for Veterans Day and other recognition events
* Read to patients
