Volunteers are at the heart of hospice and play a vital role in the total care of the patient. There are many ways to use your talents to lend a hand to those in need at the end of life.

An 11th Hour Volunteer provides compassionate care for our patients whose death is imminent and who may be without the supportive presence of loved ones. They are also available to families who want a supportive presence as their loved one dies. Care is provided wherever the patient calls home.

11th Hour Volunteers offer a quiet, comforting presence at the bedside of dying patients. They also provide comfort, reassurance and support to family members when they may be feeling overwhelmed or discouraged.

This very special type of volunteer is asked to provide support when patients are physically comfortable, but may need emotional support or simply a quiet presence.

No one should have to die alone and with an 11th Hour Volunteer, no one has to. If you are interested in becoming an 11th Hour Volunteer, please contact Charity Eilerman at (614) 456-0070 or ceilerman@stjosephshospice.com.

Volunteers are encouraged to wait at least one year following the death of an immediate family member before volunteering.
