Veteran to Veteran Volunteer
Please visit the new page to apply.
THE GOAL OF THE VET TO VET PROGRAM:
The Veteran to Veteran Program aims to pair recruited veteran volunteers with hospice patients who have been identified as veterans. Once paired, veteran volunteers have the unique ability to relate and connect with each patient thereby creating an environment where life review and healing may occur.
Veterans are a part of a distinct culture with their own common language and experience.
When veteran's interact, their common language and experience can form a strong relational bond.
The camaraderie created between veteran's has proven to be supportive for all involved.
THINGS TO EXPECT:
Assist veterans in reminiscing/telling life stories.
Take part in pinning ceremonies related to the We Honor Veteran's Program.
Volunteering with Compassus can be flexible and based on your availability. If you have just 2 hours a week or up to 4 hours a day, your compassion and experience is needed and appreciated.
