National Volunteer Week runs from Monday through next Sunday. Putnam County Hospice would like to acknowledge its team of volunteers who bring compassion, support, and friendship to those facing a life-limiting illness.

Hospice volunteers offer companionship to people in the final months and weeks of life through visits as well as respite to families and caregivers. In addition, volunteers provide support to the hospice agency through assistance with office tasks, special events, and fundraising efforts. Most 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.

Putnam County Hospice is extremely grateful to their dedicated hospice volunteers who are always eager to assist in any capacity. This celebration of volunteering reminds everyone that hospice volunteers are trained, caring, unique individuals who are truly “angels among us.”

Hospice volunteers receive training and orientation after which they can choose their area of involvement. Putnam County Hospice is looking for volunteers to serve in all areas, but is especially in need of licensed massage therapists as well as individuals with musical talent to join the volunteer team.

To learn more about becoming a hospice volunteer, please contact Kathy Rellinger at 419-523-4449 or krellinger@pchh.net.

— Kathy Rellinger, Putnam County Hospice Volunteer Coordinator
