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 provide stress relief for patients and their caregivers which in turn helps everyone in processing grief. Volunteers may support patients' emotional and/or spiritual healing through sharing a common language and cultural bond.

Qualifications:

  • Understanding and supportive.
  • Compassionate person who is accepting and respectful of people's differences.
  • The ability to communicate well, both verbally and in writing.
  • Must be able to pass background check and drug screen.
  • Fully vaccinated for COVID-19 (CMS requires that all patient-facing staff and volunteers be fully vaccinated. This rule is required for all healthcare organizations that receive federal funds through Medicare or Medicaid).
