Vigil Volunteers are a highly valued and vital part of The Sanctuary Hospice Team. Helping our patients and families during the last days and hours with emotional presence and support, so no one has to die alone. You will be sharing your compassion, gifts and talents to impact someone at the end of life’s journey. This can be the most rewarding experience and Sanctuary will make sure you are well-trained, equipped, and supported by our hospice staff. Many of our patients do not have immediate family at their bedside when they are declining. This can be an anxious and fearful time for some. Help us ease their anxiety by becoming a Vigil Volunteer.
Caring for patients in Cuyahoga, Lake, Geauga, Medina, Trumbull, Mahoning, Columbiana and & Summit Counties. Required to complete volunteer application, background check, TB, Drug Screening and on-line training- all FREE of charge.
Contact Laura Brindza, CVA; Volunteer Program Manager LauraBrindza@sanctuaryhospiceOH.com OR call 216.520.4080 for details or to discuss what vigil visits might look like.

Patients and Families Come First The mission of Sanctuary Hospice is to understand and help guide our patients’ quest for a rewarding quality of life in their final days and to help their circle of family and friends support them in life and grieve for them in death. Sanctuary pledges to provide expert hospice care for the comfort and dignity of the terminally ill by addressing their individual physical, emotional and spiritual needs. Sanctuary Hospice serves as a resource to the community for end-of-life care and related issues and seeks to provide care for all appropriate patients and families who need hospice services regardless of ability to pay.
Hospice Volunteers come from all walks of life, yet they all share a common desire-to enrich their own lives and the lives of others by giving generously of their time, energy and talents. Volunteers are an integral part of our hospice team. Once trained they may work in several areas: Administrative, Direct Patient Care Visitation for companionship and support, Bereavement support, Pet therapy, Music Therapy and many other Special Alternative Complementary services.
