Due to COVID-19, volunteers are not able to be physically present with patients and families. So, Ohio’s Hospice volunteers have found new ways to connect and donate their time and services while maintaining social distancing practices.
Many volunteers throughout Ohio’s Hospice affiliates are using their sewing skills to make face mask covers for patients, families and staff. Some volunteers have also been able to organize donations of other personal protective equipment to clinical staff.
Volunteers across all Ohio’s Hospice affiliates are penning letters of encouragement to show support for staff, patients and their families. They also continue to connect with patients by calling them on the phone and checking in with them regularly.
Additionally, some volunteers are now delivering medical supplies and prescriptions to patients.
During these uncertain times, Ohio’s Hospice recognizes and thanks all of our volunteers for continuing to support our mission. Volunteers are truly the heart of hospice care.
