Hospice Support Volunteer

Hospice of the Western Reserve serves over 1,100 hospice and 900 palliative care patients throughout northern Ohio. Support volunteers do not have direct patient contact. There is a lot of behind the scenes help needed to accomplish this task. Support volunteers may help with recruiting new volunteers (posting class flyers in the community, staffing table at health, job, and community fairs and events, assisting with events to honor Veterans in the community, public speaking, assisting with fundraising (Walk to Remember in June, 5 Warehouse Sales a year- previewing items in people's homes), and more.
Support volunteers attend 4 hours of volunteer orientation. This takes place in the first four hours of any class series (see attached schedule) and a criminal background check will be done. In addition to the listed classes, there will be a class added in Akron in November 2014- Date, Time, and Location TBD.
