  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 24 people are interested

VITAS wants to enlist your services to visit hospice Veterans living at home or in nursing homes, assisted living communities, and memory care facilities. VITAS Veteran Volunteers are Veterans seeking to share support and camaraderie with fellow Veterans. Those who are not Veterans are welcome to assist with our Veterans programs, support our Veterans community, and share the desire to remember; honor and support America's living heroes.

VITAS Veteran Volunteers help facilitate our Coffee with Comrades gatherings and participate in Veterans Day and Memorial Day programs. Veteran Volunteers assist in Pinning Recognitions of patients; can help a veteran apply for benefits or learn about available assistance; help replace lost or stolen military medals by contacting appropriate agencies; listen to life stories or record or videotape a veteran's reminiscences; telephone veterans to ask how they are doing; or educate veteran's groups about hospice services by speaking at their meetings. Please join us in supporting and honoring those who served and sacrificed for our country.
