*** Parles-tu français? Even if you don't speak French, have fun reminiscing with a home hospice patient ***

Provide companionship, joy, and comfort to a French-born hospice patient in the Hartville/Uniontown area. Have fun reminiscing over photo albums, music, and tv shows. Best time is afternoons, any day.

Tu veux essayer; want to give it a try?

We have this immediate need in Hartville/Uniontown, but Grace Hospice has on-going needs in the Akron/Canton and surrounding areas. We'll match you with someone close by, and your requirement commitment is for the amount of time YOU want and have to offer. It's a win-win for everyone! To make this kind of difference, please call Volunteer Coordinator, Johanna, at 330-899-0180.

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.
