ORGANIZATION: Kindred Hospice Lancaster

Image_202206300916

Kindred is proud to participate in the national We Honor Veterans program. 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, you belong here. Hospice volunteers are a valuable part of our care team. Veteran volunteers provide companionship (ex: conversation/sharing stories/life review, playing games, light housekeeping, running errands), 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.
