We Honor Veterans

Hospice of Wyandot County is proud to be a participant of  the Hospice Veteran Partnership.  Military service is a core experience in defining the way veterans live and the way they die.  Knowing our patients’ military history gives us the tools to meet the unique end-of-life needs of our veterans.

Community Education

We are dedicated to providing the Wyandot County community with education, outreach programs and resource location.  Our offerings are always free and open to the public.

Grief Workshops are held the fourth Thursday of every month at 6:30 pm at the Hospice of Wyandot County office.  Led by Sandy Vent, LSW and Bereavement Counselor, a presentation on a variety of topics relating to grief  is shared, followed by discussion.  Sandy and Spiritual Caregiver, Steve Sturgeon are also available to meet with individuals privately.

 Advance Care Planning can not only be confusing, but a difficult family discussion.  Our team at Hospice of Wyandot County is well versed on the terminology and familiar with the latest updated versions of the Living Will, Durable Power of Attorney for Healthcare, and Do Not Resuscitate forms.  We are happy to explain and discuss, as well as, provide the necessary forms to assure your family, physician and healthcare providers know your exact wishes for end-of-life care.

Our Speakers Program provides educational and informative presentations and workshops about various topics for community organizations, businesses, and faith institutions.  While some presentations address end-of-life issues, we offer diverse programs on individual well-being, caregiver support, coping with chronic disease, grief and loss, and the benefits of being a volunteer.  We can tailor a program to meet the unique needs of your group or organization.

Each year, more than 450 thousand hospice volunteers give more than 20 million hours of service.  Volunteers are instrumental in the life of every hospice.  Hospice of Wyandot County offers many opportunities to “make a positive difference”, whether it is providing companionship to a patient, giving light housekeeping assistance, running errands, assisting with office support, or joining fundraising events and annual projects.  A hospice volunteer who is a veteran brings a unique level of support to another veteran in hospice care; some volunteers offer pet or music therapy, adding another element of comfort at a difficult time.  We provide training and never ask someone to assist with anything they are not comfortable with. Volunteering with Hospice of Wyandot County can be a richly rewarding experience. Please contact the Hospice office for more information about volunteer opportunities.
