Become a Veteran Volunteer
As a partner of the We Honor Veterans program, SSM Health at Home has implemented a number of different initiatives to help improve the care we provide our Veteran patients.
As part of this program, we have created a Veteran to Veteran Volunteer Program, an innovative model for serving Veterans at the end of life. The goal of the Veteran to Veteran Volunteer Program is to pair Veteran hospice volunteers with Veteran hospice patients. Once paired, these volunteers have the unique ability to relate and connect with the patient creating an environment where life review and healing may occur. Many Veterans receiving SSM Health at Home – Hospice wish to be connected with a volunteer who is also a Veteran. This program makes that possible.
As a member of the program, you can provide support and comfort by offering a few hours of your time, companionship, and camaraderie. Volunteering times are flexible. Free, comprehensive training is provided, and no medical experience is necessary. All volunteers must maintain volunteer requirements and attend annual trainings.
