Looking for pre med students to sit with our hospice patients while they earn volunteer hours for their resume.
Our hospice companion volunteers visit with our patients 2-4 times a month. These visits provide companionship to our patients and for patients living at home our volunteers provide much needed relief to primary caregivers to take some time for self-care. Common activities our volunteers do with our patients include

  • Reading to the patient
  • Sharing stories
  • Singing to the patient
  • Sharing stories
  • Taking walks or just getting the patient outside on a nice day
  • Playing games
  • Home patients can sometimes use additional support including light house work, meal prep, or yardwork
At Transitions Care we rely on the support from our volunteers to share their time and talents to provide the highest level of care. We believe volunteers are a vital part to the patient care team as they provide comfort and companionship to the patient like no other. We have several volunteer opportunities to choose from that can be tailored to fit your busy schedule.

IT'S ABOUT LIVING We are experts in the art of living. Our philosophy is to empower our patients and their families by providing the tools and support necessary to embrace life.

Description

Transitions Ohio LLC is owned and operated by Jim Palazzo. After a less than favorable experience with hospice when his father was terminally ill, Jim felt compelled to create an environment that met and exceeded the fundamental expectations his experience had not. Jim believes the focus of hospice should be on living, not dying, and it is the obligation of a hospice to be available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. He has created an environment and team that believes and lives by his commandments: TO COMMIT TO HOSPICE, EACH PERSON IS UNIQUE, AND ALWAYS DOES THE RIGHT THING.
