Alabama Hospice Care of East Alabama pairs veteran hospice patients with veteran volunteers. Sharing common military experiences, our volunteers possess a unique ability to relate to and connect with fellow veterans, providing the compassionate support and service they rightfully deserve.

A NEW OPPORTUNITY TO SERVE

Veteran volunteers offer both direct and indirect patient support. Activities include:

- Sitting, reminiscing, or reading with patients
- Writing letters
- Watching television or listening to music
- Participating in veteran recognition ceremonies
- Performing light house or yard work
- Walking dogs
- Assisting in the replacement of lost military awards
