-VOLUNTEERS ARE NOT PAID EMPLOYEES AND DO NOT RECEIVE COMPENSATION
FOR THEIR TIME. -Veteran volunteers have the unique ability to
relate and connect with other Veterans, which is why they are vital
to ensuring our veteran patients get the extra attention they
deserve. Veteran volunteers provide companionship
(conversation/sharing stories, playing games, etc.), caregiver
relief (to give direct caregivers a break), compassionate
listening, and participate in Veteran pinning ceremonies. Veteran
volunteers have invaluable insight and may be able to give stress
reduction techniques to patients/caregivers, help recognize PTSD in
patients, and help patients/caregivers identify and process grief.
Volunteers may support patients emotional and/or spiritual healing
through sharing a common language and cultural bond.
