As an 11th Hour Volunteer, you have the privilege of keeping vigil with patients at their bedsides at the very end of their lives.

The term vigil comes from the 12th century Old French term vigil, meaning "to watch or guard". Embracing the implication that you are keeping vigil.

Your experience with patients and their families as they are dying is incredibly rewarding. What an honor it is to be a presence when they are most visible.

Hospice teaches us about what truly matters and how to live bravely and transparently.

We are currently looking for volunteers in the following counties: Logan, Shelby, Darke, Preble, Montgomery, Greene, Clark, Champaign and Miami
