TIME is our most precious gift! Time is limited, yet of eternal value. What makes it so is how you use it and to whom you give it. Share your gift of time with an Elara Caring hospice patient on their end-of-life journey. Volunteers can help brighten a patient's day by listening to their favorite life stories, playing board games, running errands, or just sitting quietly with them and holding their hand. The amount of time you volunteer is up to you.

You can visit with patients a couple of hours a week or several hours a month. It is up to you. We have a flexible schedule that is tailored to your availability. Elara Caring Hospice serves patients and their caregivers throughout Northeast Ohio, including Summit, Stark, Portage, Medina, and Tuscarawas counties.

We keep our volunteers as close to their home as possible. Elara offers individualized volunteer training. A TB screening, background check and drug screening(provided and paid for by Elara Caring Hospice) are required to participate in our volunteer program.

Please contact the Volunteer Coordinator at 330-608-7257 or via email at mschlimm2@elara.com for more information. Sharing your time with our Hospice patients will be some of the most rewarding time you will ever spend.
