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 support to patients and families
- Veteran-to-veteran support
- Bereavement support to families
- Reiki, yoga, healing arts
- Pet Visits with a dog certified through Canine Good Citizenship or similar certification
- Share their talents- music and crafting
- Lend support in our administrative office
We have patients throughout Northeast Ohio, including the Greater Canton and Greater Cleveland areas.
Staff and volunteers are available to pick up hand-crafted items you would like to donate to Absolute Hospice patients. For information, contact Margaret Mullen, Volunteer Coordinator, at (330) 491-6421 or email@example.com.
