The desire to give your time and talents in support of hospice patients and families
Ohio’s Hospice of Morrow County volunteers receive training appropriate to each volunteer position. Orientation and training may be scheduled to fit your busy schedule. There are no restrictions in regard to race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, handicap or national origin. Volunteers are an integral part of the hospice benefit. Volunteers are there to hold a hand, listen, read, run errands or simply help in our office. Volunteers are there to step in when a caregiver needs a break, and are there for the family after their loved one has passed away. No matter what your talent or motivation, we have an opportunity for you to help. Volunteers can choose where, when, and how they share their time and talents.
Volunteer opportunities may include or be a combination of:
clerical support including filing, answering phones, mailings, etc.
support through phone calls, mailings, and visits after the loss of a loved one.
Direct Care duties:
visits to hospice patients in their homes or nursing facility to provide companionship and support to both the patient and family. Support may include music, reading, running errands, light housekeeping, or even handyman help.
Spiritual Care duties:
support through phone calls, visits, and prayer with patients and families.
preparation for and/or conducting events to support our hospice mission.
Community Outreach duties:
outreach to individuals and businesses which may include distribution of marketing materials, recognition/pinning of local veterans, maintain a positive relationship to non-hospice patients/families who are seriously ill to provide referrals to hospice if services are needed.
We are indebted to the dedication of our friends who give their time to serve as hospice volunteers. When you are ready, just let us know you want information about volunteering.
