Veterans needed for Hospice patients in Berks & Schuylkill County

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Compassus Hospice

  • 2 people are interested

The Veteran to veteran program aims to pair recruited veteran volunteers with hospice patients who are also veterans. Veteran volunteers are important because they are able to form a connection with veteran patients that can help eliminate the stoicism and secrecy that veteran patients often develop from having served in the military.

Veteran Volunteers can help by:
-Assist veterans by reminiscing/telling life stories
- Educate and assist patients in receiving veteran benefits
- Take part in pinning ceremonies or distribute certificates for Veteran's Day and other recognition events
- Improve communication within families
- Read to patients

Mission Statement

The Compassus brand promise, Care for who I am, reflects its unique care delivery model, which focuses on each person as an individual as well as a patient, to improve their quality of life in a meaningful way. Compassus recognizes those for who they are as an individual and not being defined by their illness.

Description

Compassus Hospice is looking for volunteers to support our patients and staff in a variety of ways. Office volunteers assemble packets make copies, do computer work and make phone calls. Patient care volunteers make visits to patients providing companionship and comfort as well as offer much deserved respite to caregivers. Bereavement volunteers befriend those left behind through friendly phone calls and guided visits from our Bereavement Coordinator. Specialty volunteers offer a gamut of services including pet therapy, art therapy, Reiki therapy, massage therapy, Memory Bear - grief support item created from the patient's clothing -, and interns. Where ever your interest or talent lies, we can find a niche for you to invest in our hospice volunteer program!
