Be the difference! Be a volunteer. Hospice of the Western Reserve is seeking United States Veterans. Veterans are needed to visit veteran and non-veteran patients in private residences, nursing homes, assisted living communities, the Medina Inpatient Unit, and hospital settings. As a vital part of Hospice of the Western Reserve’s team, volunteers come from all walks of life and have a variety of skills, talents and abilities. Opportunities to serve are diverse: Companionship in home and nursing home settings, respite, legacy work, veteran to veteran support, and veteran recognition ceremonies.
The next series of volunteer classes start on October 1, 2019 at 1:00 p.m., at the Medina County Veterans Memorial Hall. Clinical volunteers must attend four orientation sessions, while non-clinical volunteers are only required to attend the first session. Pre-registration is required. For more information, or to register, call the volunteer team at 216.255.9090. It is required to wait 12 months after experiencing a significant loss before volunteering directly with patients.
