No one understands the questions and concerns of a U.S. military veteran more than a fellow veteran or active duty personnel. Caring Hospice Services now has a program where volunteers with similar backgrounds can meet and assist in the care of our veteran patients.
End-of-life can bring about painful memories and the need to share, possibly for the first time. Veteran volunteers offer a unique camaraderie allowing our veteran patients to share their stories and support their healing.
If you are a veteran and would like more information about this opportunity, we would love to talk with you!
We work with and have patient's residing with the Menlo Park Veterans Home in Edison, NJ.
Please contact Ashley DeProspero, Volunteer Coordinator
All volunteers must be Covid-19 vaccinated and boosted to visit with patients. Religious exemption is not accepted at this time.
About Caring Hospice Services of Central New Jersey
1090 King Georges Post Road, Suite 703, Edison, NJ 08837, US
Caring Hospice Services is a unique, holistic and cost-effective service designed to meet the social, emotional, spiritual, and physical needs of patients and families as they face terminal illness. Our mission is to coordinate patient and family services while respecting their choices, values, and beliefs. We are also committed to educating the community regarding hospice philosophy and multi-disciplinary standards of care.
Many times caregivers and patients can experience feelings of isolation; either because they are so consumed with caring for their loved one, or because friends and family may find it difficult to be around someone facing a terminal illness. Trained Hospice volunteers can offer emotional support to both the caregiver and the patient throughout this difficult time.
Our program includes volunteers in both a patient care and in an administrative setting.
No previous experience is necessary. We provide all the training you need and we will work around YOUR schedule.
