Veterans...Our Veteran Patients Need Comrades for their Final Tour

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Virginia Mason Franciscan Hospice and Palliative Care

gratitude heart

Veteran hospice patients are greatly comforted through companionship, validation and encouragement from Veteran hospice volunteers. If you are a Veteran of the Armed Forces and feel resourced to accompany our Veteran patients at the end of life, consider becoming a hospice volunteer.

Franciscan Hospice Volunteers provide compassionate presence for our patients, all of whom are within 6 months of dying.

Sitting at the bedside, providing respite for caregivers, walking dogs, reading aloud or delivering audio books, singing songs, playing music, and capturing a patient's life story are ways Hospice volunteers enrich the lives of our patients.

We are seeking Veteran volunteers throughout Kitsap County.
