Cypress Basin Hospice offers a Vet-to-Vet Volunteer program where trained hospice volunteers, who are also Veterans, are matched with patients who are Veterans. The Vet-to-Vet Volunteer connection is a special bond between two individuals who know firsthand the impact of serving our Country. Veteran Volunteers have the unique ability to connect with patients, creating an environment where life review and healing may occur.

Veteran volunteers activities may include caregiver respite, companionship care, and participating in a Pinning Ceremony. If you are a Veteran or are actively serving you can become a Vet-to-Vet Volunteer. The camaraderie established with service to our Country has proven to be essential in our mission to provide a peaceful and comfortable death for our Veterans.
