***CAREGIVER RESPITE IS SO IMPORTANT THESE DAYS. HELP FULFILL A SPOUSE'S WISH TO REJOIN THEIR GOLF LEAGUE!***


The spouse of a home hospice Patient in the Akron/Springfield area has been lovingly caring for their partner for some time. With the weather turning nice, they long to rejoin their Wednesday Golf League. We think it's a great opportunity for some time away for wellness and recharging. Do you have the time to help out?

The Wednesday golf league begins in May. Another family member will care for the Patient until noon, so the volunteer request is from noon-2.

BTW, the Patient is pretty special too!

We have an immediate need for a volunteer(s) in Akron/Springfield, but have on-going needs in Akron/Canton and surrounding areas. We'll match you with someone close by, and your required commitment is for the amount of time YOU want and half to offer. It's a win-win for everyone.

Mission Statement

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.

Description

Hospice is the health care system that mandates the involvement of volunteers. This reflects the history of the hospice movement in the United States, which started as an all-volunteer system.

Hospice is designed to provide comfort care as well as spiritual and emotional support in the final phase of a terminal illness. At Grace Hospice, we focus on enhancing the quality of life and our Volunteers play a key role in our mission. The hospice philosophy reaches beyond the physical needs of a patient and ensures that a patient spend their final days in comfort and with dignity.

Grace Hospice volunteers are as diverse as our professional staff. Compassion and caring are the hallmarks of any great hospice volunteer, and their involvement is a vital part of our team.
