About

Become a Ohio Living Home Health & Hospice Vigil Volunteer!

Vigil Volunteer Care is an experienced reassuring presence for patients who might otherwise die alone as well as for family/careivers who may want or need a compassionate presence when a patient is in the dying process.

What is Hospice all about?

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.
