Community Care Hospice invites interested community members to volunteer to support hospice patients and families. A new volunteer orientation is slated for 4-8 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 12.
Hospice volunteers play a vital role with the care teams serving hospice patients and their families providing respite care, caregiver relief, companionship, shopping, delivery of medications and supplies, massage, beautician and barber services, and gardening.
Volunteers also serve as educators about hospice services in the community, create Memory Bears for loved ones, visit with pet therapy animals, and play a key role in honoring hospice patients who are Veterans.
Volunteers also provide clerical and office support, serve as receptionists, assist with fundraising events and data entry.
Community Care Hospice serves about 50 patients per day across Clinton, Fayette, Highland, Ross, Pike, Adams, Brown and Hamilton counties.
