Hospice of the Western Reserve is seeking volunteers to assist in private residences, nursing homes, assisted living communities, its two hospice house locations 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: visit patients and families to provide companionship, socialization, and comfort, help with legacy work, transportation, light housework, meal preparation, run errands, make phone calls, help with clerical work, attend health fairs, make a presentation.

Volunteers with specialized professional qualifications and training are also needed: attorneys, licensed hair dressers, massotherapists, pet therapy dogs and their handlers.

The next series of volunteer classes will be held at Parkside Church, 7100 Pettibone Road, Bainbridge Township, on Saturdays, June 21 and 28, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Teen and volunteers not having patient contact attend only the first four hours on June 21 while most other volunteers attend both full classes.

Pre-registration is required. For more information or to register, call 800-707-8922 ext. 6881.
