Ohio Living Hospice

Profile Picture

Do you sing? Music is one of the deepest experiences a human can have. Often, patients who do not verbally communicate will sing along or begin to communicate after hearing a song that was once familiar to them.

We are looking for Musical Volunteers to use music to help break tension among families, to help patients relax, to improve comfort, to elevate mood, and to reach non-verbal patients. Music can tap into memories and emotions, and help families connect.If you love to sing, play an instrument, or just enjoy listening to music together with hospice patients, then you will enhance the quality of life for a hospice patient immensely. If you are studying to be a music therapist, this is a great way to get experience, but you don't have to be clinically trained. A love of music is the primary requirement!

Become an Ohio Living Hospice Volunteer

Hospice is a special kind of caring. Hospice care is patient and family centered and seeks to provide support and comfort to those facing a life limiting illness. Volunteers play a large role in this effort by sharing their skills and interests in a manner that enriches the quality of life for those they serve.

Medicare also recognizes the importance of volunteers in the delivery of hospice care. Medicare requires that hospices utilize volunteers from their local community to augment the care the hospice agency provides. Nationally, over 100,000 people serve as hospice volunteers and give millions of hours of their time to serve terminally ill patients and their families.
