The Southerncare Hospice Vigil team steps in to provide comfort in the last hours, simply by being present, playing music or even reading. Once the clinical staff has ensured that patients are comfortable, volunteers are the caring, compassionate companions who offer extra support to the patients and their families during the time of transition.

Our current team of Vigil Volunteers share their stories of spending a few hours with patients who are transitioned and are near death. The Vigil experience is a calm and peaceful one that brings comfort to families as well as the patients (especially to those who have no families)

To learn more about the Vigil Volunteer Team, plan to attend an orientation. Orientations are held monthly, or we can meet at a time/location convenient for you. Email or call for more information.

Southerncare Hospice in Akron provides care to Stark, Summit, Portage and median counties.

This is very meaningful to the families to have someone there and be present while their loved ones are passing. I gives the families a break from being a caregiver.

Also right now we are looking for individuals who are willing to put baskets together for families who have loved ones at the end of life and deliver them to the families, if anyone is interested please let me know this is very important and also very rewarding as well. Don't hesitate to reach out to me!!!!!!!!!
