ORGANIZATION: Ohio Valley Hospice

  • 1 person is interested

Volunteers are an essential part of our hospice care team. Talented and caring people in our community are offering their time to help us attain our mission of providing quality and compassionate care to those in the final stages of life. Our volunteers often have a personal hospice experience, and can empathize firsthand to the experiences of their patients and families.

Direct care volunteers with Ohio Valley Hospice make a difference by:

* Providing companionship and friendship to patients during the last days of their lives
* Offering emotional and spiritual support to families and caregivers
* Running errands to ease burden felt by family and loved ones
Performing light housekeeping chores to help create clean, orderly, and comfortable environment
* Participating in family support during the bereavement process

Some volunteers choose to provide indirect services important to efficient hospice operations as well. These tasks include assistance with word processing, photocopying, filing, mailing, and answering telephone calls.

All of our volunteers complete an application and interview process, followed by receiving training needed to work properly with our professional team. They are diverse group of people with one thing in common-a hospice heart. If you are interested in becoming an Ohio Valley Hospice Volunteer, please contact us for more information.
