We are looking for veterans who have a heart to serve and become a companion to other veterans. Veterans are very important to us here at Medi-Home Hospice and it is our desire to make sure the last moments of their lives are as comfortable and peaceful as possible. As a veteran volunteer, you can make a lasting impact on someone's life forever. Only you and that patient understand the life of a veteran and the demands that each day brings, in and out of service. Having someone walking beside them, who can relate to their life, allows our patients to feel heard and understood.

If you are feeling called to be a veteran to veteran volunteer please feel free to contact us here at Medi-Home Hospice.

Why should I become a volunteer? Hospice volunteers can make an amazing difference in the everyday lives of patients and their loved ones

An important part of the hospice team is volunteers. A volunteer may run errands or simply provide companionship to patients, as well as intervals of rest for caregivers. As a hospice volunteer, you will be oriented to a specialized program so you can understand our mission, philosophy, and goals.

We will give you the skills needed to assist patients and their families. You will find it to be the most rewarding thing that you can do to make a difference in your life and someone else’s life. Volunteering affirms and enhances your acquired skills and knowledge.

Our volunteers are the heart of the hospice team. We depend on our hospice volunteers to assist us in providing compassionate support and care to our patients and their loved ones during this difficult time in their lives.

Our volunteers offer support, companionship and practical care to our patients. Whether it’s running errands, sitting with a patient to provide relief for the care giver, reading to a patient, helping a patient write in his/her journal or providing the power of presence. As a hospice volunteer, you will truly make a difference.

Volunteers can also provide:
