Offer companionship and support to those who need it the most. Bella Care Hospice is welcoming new volunteers to spend time being a friend to our patients. You have the ability to brighten someone's day with nothing but your time! Read someone a book, play a game, listen to music together, pray with them, work on crafts, take them to activities or outside to enjoy the weather. Sometimes just your caring presence is enough to bring comfort to someone who is nearing the end of life.
We have patients in nursing facilities and homes in Akron and northern Summit county. We will work to find an opportunity near you and scheduling is flexible. We want volunteering to be easy and convenient for you! You do not need to have any experience or a specific skill set, we will provide necessary training.
Would you consider joining our team of compassionate volunteers? Your service can make a difference to the dying and their families. We celebrate the lives of our patients and want their last days to be full of comfort and joy. Our volunteers find that serving this mission is a meaningful experience for their own lives. Help us Celebrate Life!
