Project Details

Veteran Support Volunteers are needed to serve and support hospice patients who have served in the military. During your visit you might: read the newspaper, look through family photo albums, reminisce, play a game of cards, go for a walk, even sit in silence and be comforting presence. If necessary, light housekeeping such as dishes and vacuuming might be an option as well. These services will take place where the patient resides; this could be in their own home, Assisted Living, or Nursing Home.

Veterans have unique medical, social, spiritual and emotional needs. Our care focuses on understanding and helping each veteran meet his or her personal goals by providing a variety of choices. This care is delivered by an interdisciplinary team, and a team of volunteers to ensure we honor the needs and wishes of every volunteer we serve.

Minnesota Hospice is a partner of the We Honor Veterans (WHV) program. We Honor Veterans is a National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO) initiative in collaboration with the Department of Veteran Affairs (VA). We are committed to WHV’s mission of respectful inquiry, compassionate listening and grateful acknowledgment of the veterans we serve. By partnering with the VA, veteran service organizations and other community partners, we are able to provide an array of specialized programs and services that honor and support our veterans.

At Minnesota Hospice, we take great pride in our Volunteers. When you volunteer with us, you become part of our family. In addition to being a part of a community hospice, you will receive comprehensive training, and FREE continuing education.

Imagine, you can make a difference in someone's life with as little as a few hours every month!
