ECHO Hospice is seeking individuals with their own Certified Therapy pets. Please note that ECHO Hospice is not a facility. The role of a therapy pet volunteer would be to make visits to the patient's location and spend an hour or more with them. This will allow the patient to experience the therapeutic relief only a therapy pet can bring. General hospice orientation will be provided prior to making patient contact.

*Please note your pet must be a "Certified" pet, must be up to date on all vaccinations, and have a clean bill of health.

If you’re interested in becoming a hospice office volunteer please visit our website at Echo Hospice of Columbus or reach out to our Volunteer Coordinator

Mission Statement

The mission of Echo Hospice is to bring hope, support and life enriching care to those who face life's end. "Life is an echo. What you send out comes back. Radiate and give love and compassion, and love and compassion will return to you."

Description

Volunteers play a vital role in hospice care. They can provide companionship and help with activities that may enhance quality of life while bringing true joy to patients facing terminal illnesses. Volunteers are important and may help ease the burdens associated with end-of-life care for families and loved ones. While Volunteers provide companionship to patients, they can be of great support to their families. We also have other volunteer opportunities available in our programs such as, our Expressions Art Therapy, Pawsitive Pals Pet Therapy, or Music Therapy.
