Become a Volunteer with Alternative Hospice
About Our Available Specialized Programs
Dream Catcher Program
The Dream Catcher Program at Alternative Hospice is designed to help our patients’ end-of-life wishes come true whenever possible. Our care team will ask patients if they have end-of-life wishes or desires they would like to fulfill. Some of the wishes we helped make a reality have been as simple as requesting a meal from the patient’s favorite restaurant, or going on fishing trips and attending concerts. All wishes must be consistent with the mission and philosophy of Alternative Hospice.
Alternative Hospice is a We Honor Veterans Partner
As a We Honor Veterans Partner, we are committed to honoring our veterans. At admission to Alternative Hospice, we inquire about our patients’ veteran status, then contact their family to schedule a We Honor Veterans ceremony. At the ceremony, we present our veteran with a certificate, medal, and patriotic lap blanket handmade by volunteers. Our wonderful volunteer veterans and families are also invited to attend, as well as Alternative Hospice staff and facility staff. Our patients and families are touched by these meaningful ceremonies honoring their commitment and service to our country.
In addition to the ceremony, our veterans have recorded their stories in partnership with the Missouri Veterans History Project. This project records memories of Missouri’s military veterans to be archived with the Library of Congress.
