“I expect to pass through life but once. If, therefore, there be any kindness I can show,
or any good thing I can do for any fellow being, let me do it now… .”
William Penn (1644-1718)
Hospice of Cincinnati volunteers have been serving our patients and families since 1977 with caring expertise and compassion. They are a vital and integral part of the team, providing essential services at our care centers, patients' homes and in nursing homes. Volunteers bring a special touch to our service that enhances the quality of care to our patients and families.
We recognize that volunteers offer valuable skills and unique talents, and we welcome volunteers with a variety of backgrounds and life experiences. Volunteers also give administrative, clerical and facility support and help with fund raising and special assignments.
To compliment individual strengths, we require that our volunteers complete a comprehensive orientation course and make a minimum one-year commitment of two to four hours per week of services to our patients and families. Also, if you have recently experienced the loss of a loved one, we ask that you wait one year before applying to volunteer with us.
