Would you like an appreciative audience? Want an easy way to make a big impact in someone's life?
Join our team of upbeat, big-hearted people who are dedicated to bringing peace to those with terminal illnesses.
Now that Covid19 is part of our lives, we are reaching out to our patients and families from a distance. Distance volunteering options will continue to be available to our volunteers, even if Covid19 is no longer a concern.
Our volunteers are welcomed as respected members of the care team, whether they have a desire to help from a distance, or in the office, walk a patient's dog, garden, help patients write letters, sing/read to them, or just offer a friendly ear. Whether they work "up close and personal", or prefer to stay behind the scenes, we are happy to work around our volunteers' schedules.
Currently, training is done virtually or in-person one-on-one. Training is informative, easy, and fun. It is designed to give volunteers the tools to be confident and comfortable working with our patients.
Death can actually be a beautiful process, given the right circumstances.
Having the gift of foresight that the end of their life is near, many people can finally make sense of their life story. Peace can be made with people and circumstances that have had a profound impact on individuals. Many who are in the process of dying have a unique perspective on what it means to be alive. We want to help them find meaning in every moment that they still have. We take our mission seriously, but we also have fun while partnering with our patients on their journey.
About Grace Hospice-Middleburg Heights
16600 Sprague Road Suite #35, Middleburg Heights, OH 44130, US
For each employee to treat every patient as their own treasured loved one, providing care that affords a quality of life that outweighs quantity of days, and supports caregivers as their hearts find healing.
Grace Hospice cares for patients whose medical conditions are not responding to treatment or for those patients who choose to not seek aggressive medical care at the end stage of life. Hospice focuses on comfort care rather than curative care. The goal of hospice is for patients to remain as comfortable and pain-free as possible in their own home or the home of a loved one through the end of life. Care can also be provided in a long-term care facility or an assisted living facility.
