Bereavement volunteers are advised by the Bereavement Coordinator and serve as an additional support to the bereavement program, which provides services to grieving families and caregivers during the 13-month period following the death of the hospice patient. Support by the volunteer may include assistance with administrative tasks (such as standard mailings), assistance with a Bereavement Support Group and/or with the annual Memorial Service. These volunteers undergo some additional training beyond the standard volunteer orientation.
Volunteers can give as much or as little time as their schedules allow. There is not a set number of hours required. Whether you have a few minutes or several hours to give, this is a great program for you as it can be flexible.
Classes/orientation are offered several times throughout the year. You may call the office at 419-843-6106 to inquire about the scheduled training sessions. Training can also be tailored to individual organizations as well as on an individual basis.
Southern Care Hospice serves most all of NW Ohio and the Findlay area.

To provide compassionate care and extraordinary service to the patients and the families we serve.
Southern Care Hospice takes hospice care to wherever the patient calls home. Our volunteers can choose from many areas of interest as a partner to our patients. Some volunteers are simply companions, offering friendly visits others are crafty. With additional provided training some are simply present at bedside with a patient that is actively departing this world but may not have a family of his/her own. Others choose to work behind the scene by assisting in the office with many tasks from answering the phone, filing, putting supplies together for the nurses etc. Military Veteran volunteers are always sought out to be paired with veterans that are on the end-of-life journey and to assist in the many veteran specific community activities that Southern Care Hospice supplies.
