Mission Statement

To cherish life. Every moment a patient has left should be cherished and every day lived with quality. At Cherish Hospice we believe that every patient deserves to receive compassionate care no matter the age, stage or condition. With quality of life at the forefront, Cherish will provide pain management, emotional guidance and spiritual support against a backdrop of sensitivity, compassion and professionalism. We want your loved one to spend their final days ensconced in the lap of comfort. And no matter where that is, Cherish will be there with them.

Description

Cherish-Hospice, "Where Care Always Matters," is currently searching for volunteers for a recently established hospice agency in the Springfield, Ohio area. The varying service area includes Clark, Darke, Green, Montgomery and Miami counties of Ohio.

Hospice volunteers are essential as they provide companionship and support for our patients in their home -- wherever they call home. Volunteers will improve the quality of lives with sensitivity, compassion, and professionalism. After a background check and a TB test, you will be paired with individuals based upon similar interests and preferences to cherish their lives. Volunteer training will be provided by the agency regarding the hospice philosophy as well as education regarding grief and loss. Volunteers will also be trained in health and safety precautions.
