Active Military and Veteran Volunteers Needed for Hospice Patients

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Compassus Hospice


Veterans and active duty military members are needed to serve as volunteers with our hospice patients who are veterans. Compassus Hospice is a partner in the We Honor Veterans program of the National Hospice & Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO).

Veterans and active duty volunteers have a unique perspective gained from their military experience, and as such, they are able to provide understanding and comradery to our veteran patients. Military volunteers can also be utilized on an "as needed" basis to assist with a variety of veteran specific activities.

Veteran specific activities include (but not limited to)

  • Presenting a certificate and pin to the veteran
  • Assisting veteran in reminiscing / telling life stories
  • Participating in community education activities regarding veteran topics
  • Providing companionship to a veteran patient

Active duty members and veterans can bring the missing piece of forgotten comradery back into the patient's life.

Mission Statement

We are inspired to provide innovative home-based, end-of-life care in Michigan that connects patients, families and caregivers in the most profound, healing ways.


Compassus provides care state-wide through Michigan, including Borgess Health System, Genesys Health System, St. John Providence Health System, St. Joseph Health System and St. Mary’s of Michigan.

Many times the most healing setting for patients to receive their care is in the place they call home. While remaining at home at end of life can bring great comfort, it can also require professional care and support.

During those times, Compassus Hospice can make a profound difference in your life or the life of someone you love with our innovative and inspired care.
