ORGANIZATION: ECHO Hospice of Ohio, LLC

ECHO Hospice is searching for veteran volunteers to assist in our We Honor Veterans program. This opportunity is open for active duty, enlisted, reserve, or retired members of the armed forces. As a volunteer you will be matched up with a veteran patient to meet the needs specific to our armed forces population as only a veteran can.

  • As a Veteran Volunteer you will be making a positive difference in someone's life. Your main goal is providing the patient and/or family with emotional support and companionship. Patient Care Volunteers go out to the patient's home or to their assisted living facility. Volunteer activities may include watching TV, reading, listening to music, crafts, scrap-booking, assisting with letter writing, providing social stimulation, and most of all becoming a new friend. Please note that volunteers provide no medical care, medical assistance, or personal hygiene care.
  • All volunteers will compete a hospice based orientation program prior to patient contact, and our veteran volunteers will receive special training geared towards the needs of our veteran population through the We Honor Veteran initiative.

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.
