Hospice of NW Ohio seeks volunteers, offers training


Hospice of Northwest Ohio is seeking compassionate individuals to provide companionship and support to patients living in long-term care facilities and in their own homes.

Volunteers play a vital role in enhancing the end-of-life experience for our patients and their families. The skills and interests of each volunteer are matched to the important needs within our organization.

Hospice volunteers receive comprehensive training to ensure they have the confidence to perform this important role. Training includes understanding the hospice philosophy of care, communicating with patients and families, learning about what to expect at the end of life as well as basic health and safety precautions.

For more information about becoming a volunteer and when the next training session is planned, contact the Hospice Volunteer Department at 419-931-5534 or jtucholski@hospicenwo.org.
