More Details

Veteran volunteers are assigned directly to a Veteran patient to share stories, experiences and memories by providing companionship, emotional support and socialization.  If you have 15 minutes  that you can share each week or a couple a times a month, we need you! Our volunteers provide a welcomed presence to our patients and their families during this delicate time in their life that helps them remain connected to the rest of the world. Help us honor our Veteran patients as we care for them during the end of their life's journey.
