ABOUT THE PROGRAM:

Hospice volunteers are a crucial part of the hospice experience and are valued by patients and families for the personal touch they bring to an emotional process.

By becoming a hospice volunteer, you experience the personal fulfillment of impacting another person's life at a critical time. Hospice volunteers report feeling that they are making a contribution to the community and doing a service they would hope others would do for them in their time of need.

Volunteers help hospice patients in a variety of ways. They can provide:

  • Companionship to patients and families
  • Veteran-to-veteran services through pinning ceremonies and supportive visits
  • Bereavement support to families
  • Reiki, yoga, healing arts
  • Pet visits with a dog certified through Canine Good Citizenship or similar certification
  • Emotional boost by sharing their musical, crafting or other artistic talents
  • assistance in our administrative office

We have opportunities available throughout Northeast Ohio, including North Canton and Independence.

Time Commitment: Even if you have just one hour a month to share please consider joining Absolute Hospice and help us provide comfort, care, and compassion to those we serve during their final season of life.
