Volunteer opportunities: Many people were unable to volunteer during the COVID-19 pandemic and felt they could not volunteer their time when it was needed most. Now that many volunteer opportunities have returned (most of them masked or vaccinated), organizations like Crossroads Hospice & Palliative Care in Cleveland are looking for positive, energetic and compassionate volunteers.
Volunteers play an important role in providing direct comfort, companionship and a helping hand to terminally ill patients and their families at home, assisted living and nursing homes. Whether it is running errands for a patient, sharing their favorite activities or simply providing them with company, the role of a Carrefour volunteer is both necessary and rewarding. It’s a chance to bring your interests and talents to the fore and share them with others.
Never volunteered before? No problem. All new volunteers benefit from broad support, including a training program and regular feedback. A Carrefour volunteer manager always accompanies a volunteer on each patient’s first visit.
“Our volunteers have the ability to make patients happy in so many different ways,” says Pamela Richey McClain. “Being a friendly voice or taking the time to listen to a patient’s favorite music or read a book makes all the difference. It is a very rewarding job. “
Not all volunteer positions at Carrefour require interaction with patients and their families. Many volunteer administrative tasks in the office are also available.
Volunteers can be up to 16 years old. Students are welcome to apply. According to Richey McClain, “High school and college students gain valuable healthcare experience as Carrefour volunteers. And although Crossroads has five offices throughout the Ohio area, hospice and hospice care is administered wherever a patient calls home. Volunteers are needed throughout the Cleveland area, including Cuyahoga, Lake, Geauga, Ashtabula, Trumbull and Erie.
