CANTON, Ohio (March 26, 2014) – National Volunteer Week is April 6 – 13 and Aultman Hospice is paying tribute to its core of dedicated volunteers who provide support, companionship and dignity to those facing serious and life-limiting illness. 

“We want to extend our deepest gratitude to each and every Aultman Hospice volunteer who has provided the gift of presence and support to our patients and families,” said Aultman Hospice Volunteer Coordinator Becky Shafer. “You are the heart of our Aultman Hospice team. Your dedication and compassion to those journeying through the end of life is inspiring.”

Hospice volunteers play an indispensable role in enabling Aultman Hospice to offer the best care possible for patients living with life-limiting illness, their families and caregivers. By sharing their time, energy and expertise, hospice volunteers bring compassion and caring to the lives of those in need.

The Aultman Hospice Program has about 95 active volunteers who have provided more than 6,000 hours of service to our program. The National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization reports that there are an estimated 458,000 hospice volunteers providing more than 21 million hours of service to hospice programs each year. More than 1.58 million patients in the U.S. are cared for by hospice programs every year.

Hospice volunteers help the people they serve live every moment of life to the fullest and enable the organizations they work with to achieve their mission in the community. Many hospice volunteers choose to give their time helping others because of their own experience with the compassionate care hospice provided to a dying loved one.
