Ohio’s Community Mercy Hospice recently held a Memorial Day Tribute at its office to honor…
Ohio’s Community Mercy Hospice, a service of Ohio’s Hospice of Dayton, is celebrating National Volunteer Week April 17-23. This week is an opportunity to recognize the impact our volunteers have on our not-for-profit organization and our patients facing a life-limiting illness or injury.
Volunteers provide a variety of services throughout the community including visits with patients, delivering supplies, assisting with office support, and making keepsake items for patients and families. In addition, Veteran volunteers are part of American Pride® Veteran Care by Ohio’s Hospice, performing Veteran recognition ceremonies to honor the service of Veteran patients.
Thank you to our volunteers for their ongoing support for our mission. Volunteers are truly the heart of hospice care.
We invite you to read about some of our volunteers at Ohio’s Community Mercy Hospice and how they serve our mission.
- Butterscotch Colby provides animal-assisted therapy to patients. The 2-year-old cat loves to sit in patients’ laps and let them pet him. He and his human mom, Anna Colby, also volunteer in the office at Ohio’s Community Mercy Hospice and visit patients at the Hospice House at Ohio’s Hospice of Miami County.
- Michael Lyons has been a volunteer with Ohio’s Community Mercy Hospice for more than a year, assisting with caregiver relief and Veteran recognition ceremonies. He enjoys volunteering with the patients and getting to know them.
