If you have served in the military and are searching for a way to make a difference in the lives of Veterans on hospice services, we would love to have you as a hospice volunteer!Veteran Volunteers have the unique ability to relate and connect with other Veterans, which is why they are vital to ensuring our veteran patients get the extra attention they deserve. Veteran volunteers provide companionship (conversation/sharing stories, playing games, etc.), caregiver relief (to give direct caregivers a break), compassionate listening, and participate in Veteran pinning ceremonies.

Veteran volunteers have invaluable insight and may be able to give stress reduction techniques to patients/caregivers, help recognize PTSD in patients, and help patients/caregivers identify and process grief. Volunteers may support patients emotional and/or spiritual healing through sharing a common language and cultural bond.

All volunteers are integral and well-loved members of our team, and are provided with training and ongoing support.

Reach out to our Volunteer Coordinator, Julianna, at (724) 334-6600 to discuss the possibilities and create an opportunity unique to your strengths!
