What do you do to give your life a purpose? What do you do to give your life meaning?
You can make a difference in your life and in the life of hospice patients. Whether it is holding one's hand, reading to them, styling their hair, rubbing lotion on their hands or pushing them in the wheelchair in a facility, these simple acts of kindness mean a lot to someone who is seriously ill.

Hospice Cleveland County exists to provide high quality skilled compassionate care and support for individuals with a life-limiting illness, their families, and the community, regardless of their ability to pay. Volunteers are an integral part of the hospice team, filling roles that range from direct contact with patients to providing clerical and fundraising support for the organization. Hospices that participate with Medicare are required to utilize volunteers alongside their paid clinical and administrative staff. Hospice volunteers describe their work as gratifying, intellectually stimulating, and emotionally meaningful. Hospices require a lot from their volunteers and value them greatly.
As an organization that values people, we will strive to live our mission by believing in the following: human dignity, compassion, dedication, integrity, stewardship, leadership, service and excellence.
