HOLISTICARE HOSPICE is looking for Veterans to help support our Veteran patients and families as they navigate the challenges that Veterans face at the end-of-life. Veteran volunteers have the unique ability to relate and connect with other Veterans, which is why they are vital to ensuring our patients get the extra attention they deserve. Veteran volunteers provide companionship (conversation/sharing stories, playing games, etc.), caregiver relief (to give direct caregivers a break), compassionate listening, and may participate in Veteran pinning ceremonies.
