Hospice Companionship Volunteer
Offer support and company to those who need it the most. Bella Care Hospice is welcoming new volunteers to spend time with patients for friendship and companionship. Read someone a book or the news, play a game, share stories, listen to music, or take someone outside to enjoy the weather. You have the ability to brighten someone’s day with nothing but your time! We also have opportunities in our administrative office to help with other care related tasks.
We have opportunities in throughout Medina, Summit and Cuyahoga Counties and will work to find an opportunity near you. We want volunteering to be easy and convenient for you. Our schedule is very flexible, just tell us when you would like to volunteer.
You do not need to have any experience or a specific skill set. We will provide any necessary training.
