ORGANIZATION: Sanctuary Hospice

  • 1 person is interested

Sanctuary Hospice is looking for enthusiastic and compassionate Volunteers-like you! Our Volunteers provide companionship and socialization to patients along with respite for their loved ones when they need it most! With Social Isolation at an all time high, it's the commitment of our volunteers that our patients rely on to brighten their day. Visit one-on-one (if permissible), send cards of encouragement, visit virtually or make check in phone calls with patients and families to provide support. We have patients across the Northeast Ohio area...from Lorain to Ashtabula and as far south as Columbiana County.

Volunteers are crucial to the hospice experience and a vital part of our team of caregivers. Patients and families value the personal touch volunteers bring to an emotional process at the end of life’s journey.

Contact Volunteer Coordinator: Laura Brindza, CVA @ 216.520.4080 OR Laurabrindza@sanctuaryhospiceOH.com for additional details and to discuss next steps to starting your hospice volunteer journey.

Mission Statement

Patients and Families Come First The mission of Sanctuary Hospice is to understand and help guide our patients’ quest for a rewarding quality of life in their final days and to help their circle of family and friends support them in life and grieve for them in death. Sanctuary pledges to provide expert hospice care for the comfort and dignity of the terminally ill by addressing their individual physical, emotional and spiritual needs. Sanctuary Hospice serves as a resource to the community for end-of-life care and related issues and seeks to provide care for all appropriate patients and families who need hospice services regardless of ability to pay.

Description

Hospice Volunteers come from all walks of life, yet they all share a common desire-to enrich their own lives and the lives of others by giving generously of their time, energy and talents. Volunteers are an integral part of our hospice team. Once trained they may work in several areas: Administrative, Direct Patient Care Visitation for companionship and support, Bereavement support, Pet therapy, Music Therapy and many other Special Alternative Complementary services.
