SERVING THOSE WHO SERVED US:
"WE HONOR VETERANS" Volunteer Opportunity with In My Home Hospice Care.

Our Hospice is a partner in the We Honor Veterans program with the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization and the United States Department of Veteran Affairs. We are also a proud partner with the Vietnam War Commemoration. The goals of the program are to demonstrate respectful inquiry, compassionate listening and grateful acknowledgement to comfort patients with a history of military service.

Are you a military veteran who would like to provide companionship and support to military veterans on our hospice service? Or, perhaps you have time to be involved in special events honoring Veterans:

In My Home Hospice Care pairs volunteers who are Veterans with Veteran Hospice patients. These volunteers have the unique ability to relate and connect with each patient, creating an environment open to healing and life review.

In My Home Hospice Care also holds special Pinning Ceremonies, presenting military pins, service certificates and flags to recognize and thank Veterans for their service.

What can Veteran volunteers do?
  • Assist Veteran patients in reminiscing and telling life stories
  • Educate and assist patients in receiving Veteran benefits
  • Take part in pinning ceremonies and recognition events for Veterans
  • Assist in replacing lost medals

All of our patient support volunteers require a background clearance, CPR Training, and TB test. (All is at no cost to you and will be a part of the enrollment/orientation process).

Patient visits can occur in an array of settings, including a patient's private home, group home, or care facility.
