Ohio Living Home Health & Hospice

Senior Independence Home Health & Hospice

Senior Independence values the importance of pet therapy and the health benefits that pets can provide. Unfortunately, too often, our patients are unable to have a pet within the nursing home, assisted living or group home in which they reside. If you have a certified therapy pet, please consider volunteering for Senior Independence Hospice!

Become a Senior Independence 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.

How you can help

Hospice volunteers help patients and families in a variety of ways including some of the following:

  • Companionship, listening, reading to patients
  • Spiritual support
  • Errands, yard work, organization
  • Creating memories (scrapbooks, audio/visual tapes, etc.)
