Volunteers provided more than 28,000 hours of assistance in 2015 with a wide variety of patient, family and general support duties -- enabling Hospice of Northwest Ohio to make every patient's end-of-life journey meaningful.

Becoming a Hospice Adult Volunteer

Adult volunteers play an integral role in the hospice program and are an important member of our interdisciplinary team.  All volunteers receive training before being assigned a volunteer role.  Volunteers who work directly with patients in our inpatient facilities will receive additional training. 

Most adult volunteers spend four hours, or less, per week fulfilling their volunteer commitments to Hospice.

New volunteer training classes are formed several times each year, or as a particular need arises. At this time, our greatest need is for home care and nursing facility volunteers who are willing to work with patients living in all areas of Northwest Ohio and Monroe County, Michigan.
