Adult Volunteers

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 centers 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 numerous times throughout the 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 Lucas, Fulton, Henry, northern Wood, western Ottawa and Monroe counties.

To learn more about Hospice of Northwest Ohio's volunteer program or to discuss how to get involved, please contact the Volunteer Department at 419-661-4001 or jtucholski@hospicenwo.org.

"Hospice of Northwest Ohio is amazing. I only had them for a couple of months for my mom. They took a big load off of me as I was the only caregiver for my mom. They gave me so much support, comfort and help. I cannot praise them enough. Thank you."
