Hospice Volunteers Needed! If you are compassionate, caring, and have a calling to help others, becoming a hospice volunteer might be the perfect opportunity for you. Our volunteers give their time, talent and hearts generously and unselfishly - yet commonly feel that they receive more than they give.
Volunteers may choose the area in which they prefer to function and the hours they are willing to donate. We serve all of the Greater Cincinnati/Dayton/Columbus Ohio region.
Some areas to volunteer include:
- Patient Support: Providing Companionship to the Patient and/or Caregiver Relief. - Administrative: Data Entry, Filing and Office Assistance. - Special Projects: Sewing, Letter writing, creating care packages. - Bereavement Support.
