Calling Veteran Volunteers

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Compassus

  • 3 people are interested

The Veteran-to-Veteran Volunteer Program aims to pair recruited veteran volunteers 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.

Veteran Volunteers can help by:

  • Assist veterans in 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
  • Friendly visits
  • Improve communication within families
  • Assist in replacing lost medals
  • Provide respite for caregivers
  • Read to patients

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.
