Thank you for considering volunteering with Alacare!
Veterans have a bond with each other that no one else can understand. In order to help support our Veteran Hospice patients, we are actively seeking Veterans and/or others who have an interest in helping our Military. Veteran Volunteers assist in honor ceremonies and/or visit with our Veteran hospice patients and families.
Alacare is a member of the national We Honor Veterans Program and honors each Veteran hospice patient with a pinning ceremony. At the ceremony the Veteran patient is presented a Veteran pin, certificate of appreciation for their military service and an American flag. The Veteran volunteer may also provide the Veteran patient with companionship, interaction, comfort, and emotional support.
New volunteers are mentored by the Volunteer Coordinator until they feel comfortable and confident in providing assistance independently. Volunteers are never expected to assist with the personal care of patients and are assigned based on their interests and what tasks they feel they can easily accomplish.
Our volunteers set their own schedules and we work with you to make the most of your talents and time! If you have a heart for volunteering, please contact Alacare to find out more about this and other volunteer opportunities available.
