Suncrest Hospice and Palliative Care values Veteran volunteers as a commitment to recognize and provide a specialized level of care to our Veteran patients. Our Veteran patients come to us with a unique set of experiences. Suncrest seeks to bring a higher level of awareness to them by assisting to connect them with the services and benefits that they qualify for, in addition to matching them to Veteran volunteers in our Veteran - to - Veteran program. Having the knowledge and awareness of how to support and respect these experiences is vital in making meaningful connections for our patients as the brave this last patrol.

What you can do to support Veterans on hospice:

  1. Create emotionally safe environments for Veterans to express their feelings and needs.
  2. Acknowledge physical, emotional, or spiritual pain.
  3. Facilitate discussion, reminiscing, and/or life review.
  4. Show appreciation through Veteran-specific recognition projects throughout the year.
We have over 200 patients across Maricopa county, so there are plenty of opportunities for you to match with patients throughout your journey with Suncrest. Patient visits may include companionship in the form of conversation, arts and crafts, playing card or board games, listening to music, and 11th hour vigil support. Volunteers are also encouraged to help with Veteran recognition projects, birthdays, or facility events.

Description

Hospice is not a "place" but a philosophy. The care provided by Suncrest Hospice does not focus on halting, delaying, or curing of an illness but rather on comfort. At the center of hospice care is the core belief that each of us has a right to die pain-free and with dignity.

Suncrest hospice provides exceptional care to their patients by qualified and compassionate physicians, nurses, aides, social workers, spiritual advisors, and volunteers. Our team is committed to our patients comfort and quality of life while also supporting the patient's family members. Our goal is to manage our patient's pain and symptoms, respond to the emotional, psychosocial and spiritual needs. We also provide education to caregivers on how to better care for our patients. In all of this, the volunteer has the opportunity to play an essential role within the team.
