Kindred hospice volunteers are trained in the goals and philosophy of hospice care, as well as the care and comfort of the hospice patient.
Orientation sessions are held monthly at the Kindred Hospice offices, 540 Officenter Place, Gahanna, or at a location convenient for an individual or group interested in volunteering.
Through their caring, compassion, and time given to hospice patients, our volunteers continue to make an invaluable contribution to community, personal emotional and spiritual growth, and greater appreciation for life.
