Hospice Veteran-to-Veteran Volunteer

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Enhabit Health Hospice

At Enhabit Hospice our Veteran-to-Veteran Volunteer Program aims to connect a Veteran or Active Duty Service Member with hospice patients who have been identified as Veterans. Veteran Volunteers have the unique ability to relate and connect with each patient who also served, thereby creating an environment where life review and healing may occur.

What is the importance of Veteran Volunteers?

Volunteers are essential to the delivery of quality hospice care. When Veterans interact, their common language and experience can form a strong relational bond. The camaraderie created between Veterans has proven to be supportive for all involved.

What activities can Veteran Volunteers do?

  • Assist Veterans in reminiscing/telling life stories.
  • Educate and assist patients in receiving Veteran benefits.
  • Take part in pinning ceremonies or distribute certificates for Veterans Day and other recognition events.
  • Assist in replacing lost medals.
