About

Kindred Hospice is a level III partner with the We Honor Veterans program and are seeking Veteran volunteers to provide companionship and support to Veteran patients with life-limiting illnesses and their families in your community.

Veteran Volunteers may make visits to Veteran patients in which you provide companionship and socialization through leisure activities, caring presence and reminiscence and life review. Or you may
attend and help with Veteran pinning ceremonies or help with special projects that benefit the Veteran community.

Veteran Volunteers may also provide the opportunity for respite to caregivers when a patient resides at home, allowing a caregiver to take time away to care for him/herself.

Volunteers with KindredHospice are an important part of a larger team who recognize that psychological, spiritual, and social services, as well as medical/clinical care, can contribute to an improved life quality for patients in the last stages of life. We offer an extensive orientation and ongoing volunteer support.

Kindred serves patients and their families in a wide range of communities, and will likely offer volunteer opportunities and training close to your home.
