Crossroads Hospice and Palliative Care

November is a traditional time for recognizing the service and commitment of those who have served their country as a member of the Armed Services.

Crossroads Hospice and Palliative Care wants to enlist former military personnel from across the Greater St. Louis region to serve as volunteers to assist in providing care and comfort for hospice patients who are themselves Veterans. (Patients who are Veterans often find it easier to communicate with a fellow Veteran.)

FYI, Medicare guidelines require all hospices to have a team of volunteers providing day-to-day administrative and/or direct patient care services in an amount that equals at least 5% of total patient care hours of all paid hospice employees and contract staff.

Thank you in advance for helping us spread the word.
