Four Twin Cities hospice providers are working in partnership to educate veterans to provide volunteer services at the end of life.
Fairview Home Care & Hospice, HealthPartners Hospice & Palliative Care, Our Lady of Peace and St. Croix Hospice are hosting a one-day training to become a Veteran-to-Veteran volunteer.
Our Lady of Peace Home
Saturday, June 6th, 2015
2076 St. Anthony Ave., St. Paul, Minn.
Veteran volunteers have the unique ability to relate and connect with patients who have served in the military, creating an environment where life review and healing may occur. Veteran volunteers may:
— Listen to life stories
— Take part in recognition ceremonies
— Share current events
— Listen to music, play cards or games
— Keep vigil when death is near
After the training, potential volunteers apply to serve within individual organizations which treat patients throughout the Twin Cities.
For more information and to reserve a spot, call Marie at 612-875-5273. RSVP by June 5.
