Would you recommend Hospice of the Western Reserve?

Hospice of the Western Reserve is an organization that provides skill and care that surpasses others. It provides dignity and respect to patients and their families during a time of serious illness, including end of life conditions. It provides countless possibilities for care. The rewards for me as a volunteer far exceed the work and time I provide. Our patients, families, and employees of Hospice are so appreciative and give back so much experience and insight to us as volunteers. It is a privilege to be able to help take care of our patients.

I began volunteering here 13 years ago and have since become an employee. I still volunteer. I sit vigil with dying patients, do friendly visits, make check-in phone calls to patients, and help at special events. What I love about the agency is the dedication of the staff and volunteers in supporting patients and their families at this difficult time.
