XENIA — Crossroads Hospice & Palliative Care is committed to being at the forefront of the hospice care industry, to continually shape the way end-of-life care is viewed and administered.
“We call our volunteers ‘Ultimate Givers’ because they selflessly give love and comfort to terminally-ill patients and their families,” said Goldman. “Just being a friendly voice or giving caregivers a much-needed break makes a world of difference. Best of all, our volunteers often gain as much as they give—new relationships, new skills and great satisfaction.”
Volunteers can donate as little as 45 minutes twice a month and share their favorite activities like reading, card games, playing music, or arts and crafts. Student volunteers are also welcome; they must be 16 years or older.
For more information or to sign up as a volunteer, contact Amy Goldman by phone at 937-312-3170 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Before becoming a Crossroads “Ultimate Giver,” participants must complete an application, flu shot, TB skin test, and training session led by members of the Crossroads team. Potential volunteers must wait a minimum of one year after the death of an immediate family member or loved one before applying.
Crossroads Hospice & Palliative Care’s mission is to provide highly unique, comprehensive, and compassionate hospice services to persons experiencing a life-limiting illness and to their caregivers. Visit www.crossroadshospice.com for more information.
