Embracing the Heart of Hospice: Volunteers’ Vital Role


Hospice care extends far beyond medical treatment – it creates a compassionate environment where individuals facing life-limiting illnesses find solace, support, and comfort. Volunteers play a pivotal role in the hospice journey, offering comfort and companionship to patients and their families during a challenging time.

As a leading hospice provider in Ohio, we recognize the profound impact volunteers have on the lives of those they serve. These dedicated individuals bring warmth and empathy to every interaction, offering a listening ear, a comforting presence, and a helping hand when needed most. Whether it’s running errands, reading to patients, or simply providing companionship, volunteers embody the spirit of compassionate care.

What do hospice volunteers do?

  • Emotional and Social Support – volunteers often simply spend time with patients, offering a listening ear, conversation, and companionship. This also provides respite for families and other caregivers, allowing them time to rest, run errands, or simply take time for themselves.
  • Practical Assistance – volunteers often assist with active, non-medical tasks like helping with hobbies, transportation, light housekeeping, reading, and similar activities.
  • Specialized Support – some volunteers may have expertise and/or training in specialized areas like music therapy, art therapy, or massage therapy.
  • Administrative Support – some volunteers may prefer to assist in an operational capacity rather than a patient setting. Volunteers who offer administrative support may assist with office tasks, fundraising, events, or recruiting additional volunteers.
