Vets can help vets via hospice program

Rockingham VNA & Hospice

EXETER — Rockingham VNA & Hospice is offering comprehensive Veteran to Veteran hospice-volunteer training sessions beginning Friday, Sept. 15, and continuing each Friday from 9 a.m. to noon through Nov. 3.

A terminal diagnosis can be a lonely experience for anyone, but, for a veteran, that diagnosis can present unique issues.

At a time when understanding is needed most, many veterans find themselves isolated even from family and friends.

Other veterans can help to end that isolation by becoming a Veteran to Veteran hospice volunteer.

Who better to offer support to those patients at the end of life than another veteran?

There must be a minimum of five people registered in order for the training to take place.

The classes will be held at Rockingham VNA & Hospice, 137 Epping Road, Exeter.

To register or for more information, call Martha Carlson, hospice volunteer coordinator, at 772-2981 or 800-540-2981, ext. 140.
