Veteran Volunteers are paired with hospice patients who have been identified as veterans. Veteran Volunteers are important because they are able to form a camaraderie with veteran patients that can help eliminate the stoicism and secrecy that veteran patients often develop from having served in the armed forces. These volunteers are encouraged to assist veterans in reminiscing, have friendly visits, help improve communication within families, and participate in events recognizing veterans. Veteran volunteers have the unique ability to relate and connect with each veteran patient allowing them to become an essential piece in the delivery of quality end-of-life care.
