At Brighton Hospice, we care about the veterans we serve and want to do all we can to recognize each and every one of them. Our Vet-to-Vet Volunteer Program is one of the ways that we acknowledge and remember one’s military service. As in all aspects of hospice work, volunteers play an integral role in caring for our patients; but there is a special and unique bond, a camaraderie, that forms when one veteran talks with another. It is often easier for veteran patients to share his or her military history when they feel understood by another Veteran, making the opportunity for connection and healing much more meaningful.

Are you interested in helping us honor our veterans? Consider joining our team! We have an immediate need for men and women, who are veterans, on active-duty or in the reserves, from all branches of our military, to provide support and companionship to other veterans at end-of-life. In addition to being a veteran companion, veteran volunteers may also take part in our Veteran’s Oral History Program, Honor Ceremonies and community outreach.

Through our partnership with *We Honor Veterans (WHV), our hospice team, including volunteers, receives ongoing veteran-specific education so that we are better prepared to address a veteran’s unique needs at end of life. We also provide infection control education and any necessary PPE to ensure you are prepared and comfortable in your role as a Brighton Volunteer.

We currently have a need for Vet-to-Vet Volunteers in the Muskego area. We do take into account your location to assign patient visits that are within or near your own community. The amount of time you give is flexible and scheduled around your availability.

Contact Peggy, Volunteer Coordinator, at: 262-794-3980 or pczarnik@brightonhospice.com, for more information on becoming a Hospice Companion with Brighton Hospice. You can also find us on the web at www.brightonhospice.com.

*WHV was created by the National Hospice & Palliative Care Organization, in collaboration with the Dept. of Veterans Affairs, to empower hospice professionals to meet the unique needs of dying veterans
