Brighten a patients day at the southerncare hospice Akron team area

ORGANIZATION: Southerncare Hospice in Green Ohio

Southerncare Hospice does not only provide exceptional care, but also enhances it's services with the help of our volunteers.

Visiting a patient for an hour- once a week, twice a month, 4 times a month or even once a month makes a great difference to our patients. Conversations, music which could include playing an instrument to the patient or even singing, reading, watching television together or accompanying a patient to a facility activity can brighten a patient's day where it gives him/her something to look forward to each week or month.

Our volunteers choose which patient they wish to visit, we make visits easy and convenient for both our volunteers and our patients. We serve patients in portage county, stark county, summit county and medina county, and we have the need for volunteers. So think about sharing some time with one (or more) of our patients.

The Southerncare hospice volunteer program offers opportunities for volunteers not only to make a difference in the patients lives that they visit, but also gives them the opportunity to meet other volunteers with similar goals and values, and also attend monthly lunch and learn education presentations as well as other activities during the year.

We of course invite you to join our team of outstanding volunteers!!!!!
