  • 1 person is interested

Are you a Veteran and looking to give back to other Veterans?

The Veteran-to-Veteran Volunteer Program aims to pair recruited Veteran Volunteers with hospice patients who have been identified as Veterans. Once paired with hospice patients who also have military experience, Veteran Volunteers have the unique ability to relate and connect with each patient thereby creating an environment where life review and healing may occur.

Mission Statement

Come create a friendship and show love and companionship to someone nearing their end of life! Volunteers make a difference by showing a hospice patient they aren't alone and helping them along the journey by listening to their stories, doing arts and crafts, music, singing, reading, the list goes on and on! The volunteer process is quick and easy and I am there to guide you the whole way! At Gentiva, we believe every day is an opportunity to make care more personal and life more comfortable. That’s why we offer personal care, palliative care and hospice to give people the care they need with dignity, grace, and love. 

Description
