Time is our most precious gift. Share your gift with a hospice patient. Time is limited, yet of eternal value. What makes it so is how you use it and to whom you give it. Share your gift of time with a patient on their end-of-life journey. No special skills are necessary, just a listening ear and an open heart. It will be some of the most rewarding time you will ever spend. Great Lakes Caring Hospice is currently looking for Volunteers: Companionship Volunteers, Pet Therapy, Veteran, Office and By Your Side Volunteers. We have patients in need in outlying areas as well as in the Akron area. These area include Hartville, Canton, Massillon, Dover, Stow, Kent, Bath and Fairlawn. Hours are flexible. Weekdays, evenings, and weekend visits are available. Typically we ask that our Volunteers spend 1-2 hours per week with their assigned patient. Make a real difference in someone's life! For more information contact Melissa Schlimm, Volunteer Coordinator at 234-788-6648 or by email at mschlimm@greatlakescaring.com.
