Goshen Health Hospice seeks veteran volunteers

May 15, 2018

GOSHEN, Ind. – Goshen Health Hospice is hosting a free volunteer training session for veterans on May 21, 2018 in the community room at Goshen Physicians Family Medicine and Urgent Care. The four-hour, level one training starts at noon, and will include hospice philosophy with special emphasis on working with veteran patients.

Upon completion of the training, veteran volunteers will have the opportunity to provide comfort, support and companionship to veteran hospice patients and their families in Elkhart, Kosciusko, LaGrange and Noble counties.

Goshen Health Hospice is a level three partner in the national We Honor Veterans program. The veteran-to-veteran volunteer program aims to pair hospice patients with a veteran volunteer who served in the same branch of the military.

Registration is not required to attend to the training, but participants must be at least 18 years old. For more information, contact Deb Lindemood, hospice volunteer coordinator at (574) 364-1387 or dlindemood@Goshenhealth.com.
