Dearborn County Hospital’s Hospice program is looking for volunteers who can provide respite care for the family of patients who are terminally ill. Volunteers will be asked to visit with a Hospice patient at the patient’s home, nursing home or hospital room.

“Respite care allows the family to take a break, complete household chores or leave and run necessary errands,” explained Tim Heller, MSW, LCSW, DCH Hospice Social Worker. “Interested persons are asked to be able to assist Hospice once or twice a month for at least a year.”
