Volunteers at Ohio’s Community Mercy Hospice make an impact on the lives of patients, their families, and the staff every day. During National Volunteer Week, April 19-25, Ohio’s Community Mercy Hospice took a moment to recognize its 63 volunteers.
“Our volunteers help to bring a smile, respite and comfort to both our patients and families,” said Tami Clark, volunteer coordinator at Ohio’s Community Mercy Hospice. “Whether the volunteer has made a comfort item or visits with the patients on a regular basis, they are making a difference.”
Volunteers help every area of the organization by visiting patients, providing caregiver relief, playing music for patients, helping in the office, delivering supplies to patients and more.
“Our energetic, patient-focused volunteers are integral members of the hospice team,” Clark said. “They are truly the heart of hospice care.”
Ohio’s Community Mercy Hospice will recognize its volunteers when social distancing restrictions have been lifted.
