About

Become a companionship visit volunteer with Ohio Living Home Health & Hospice. They may forget what you said....but they will never forget how you made them feel. ~Carl W. Buechner This is especially true of spending time with hospice clients. We enter this world to fanfare and celebration and sadly many spend much of their time alone as they prepare to leave this world. An hour visit ever week or every other week can mean a world of difference in how that person feels. We want everyone to feel loved and valued until their final breath. Simply spending time with individuals in conversation, playing a game, listening to music, watching TV together, reading to them or even just holding their hand can provide just that caring that all crave. Visits can also provide time that the families can get out for an hour and know their loved one is not alone. If you are interested in providing companionship visits please contact us!
