Hospice and Palliative Care Volunteers
Volunteers 18 and over are needed to visit hospice and palliative care patients in their own homes, nursing homes, and assisted living facilities throughout northern Ohio. Teen volunteers may visit in nursing homes/assisted livings only. There are many types of volunteer opportunities- social visits, respite for caregivers, vigil presence, art/music activities, legacy work such as helping create a scrapbook of memories or videotaping or tape recording someone's story, light house work and assisting with cooking, hands on care volunteers assist with feeding and activities of daily living, check in calls to patients with heart or lung ailments, and more. Volunteers receive 16 hours of volunteer education so that they are well prepared to serve our patients and receive a two step tb test and criminal background check at agency expense. Classes are available throughout northern Ohio. Visit us at www.hospicewr.org/volunteer to learn more and fill out an online application. In addition to the attached schedule of classes, a set will be added in Akron in November. Date, time, location TDB.
