Ohio Living Hospice is expanding, and we need you to grow our volunteer program! Contact Tammy to find out how you can get involved.

Be Part of Something Extraordinary!

Hospice is a special kind of caring. Hospice care is patient and family centered and seeks to provide support and comfort to those facing a life limiting illness. As a teenage volunteer, you can play a large role in our efforts by sharing and developing skills and interests in a manner that enriches the quality of life for those you serve.

Medicare also recognizes the importance of volunteers in the delivery of hospice care. Medicare requires that hospices utilize volunteers from their local community to augment the care the hospice agency provides. Nationally, over 100,000 people serve as hospice volunteers and give millions of hours of their time to serve terminally ill patients and their families.

COVID-19 considerations

Ohio Living Home Health & Hospice is adhering to CDC, State and local orders with regard to COVID-19 and implementing processes that promote the safety of our employees, volunteers, patients, and clients.
