Hospice Volunteers

Hospice is a special kind of care offered to people with a life-limiting illness. Hospice treats the person, not the disease. In addition to providing for the patient's needs, the hospice team attends to the emotional, physiological and spiritual needs of the patient and the family.

Berger is the only non-profit hospice provider in Pickaway County, and we've been a staple of the community for more than 20 years. We offer a team-based approach to hospice that is provided by people who live and work in the community. Our volunteers are part of that team, and they're supported by physicians, nurses, therapists, health aides, chaplains and social workers.

Our hospice volunteers go through a training process before they start work. The tasks they perform as a hospice volunteer can vary, depending on the needs of the families they serve. For more information, contact Berger Hospice at (740) 420.7950.

Gift Shop Volunteers

Our gift shop is located in the corridor between the hospital's main lobby and the medical office building. It offers a variety of gift items, including fresh flowers, cards and candles. Those gifts can brighten the day of a person recovering in the hospital. Proceeds from those purchases help fund the professional development opportunities of the staff. Purchases also help us raise funds for buying equipment.

Our volunteers help to keep the gift shop running. They answer questions, ring up purchases and perform other retail duties during the shop's open hours.

For more information, call (740) 420.8372.


Circle of Caring Volunteers

Circle of Caring was founded in 1997. Its mission is to assist the frail and elderly, as well as people and their families who are living with disabilities. Through this program, people in need can get help with:

  • Handyman chores, including ramp building
  • Light housekeeping
  • Shopping or other errand
  • Transportation
  • Yard work

Our volunteers also make friendly visits, in person or by phone. And some of our volunteers offer respite care, so family members accustomed to providing around-the-clock care can rest, relax and recharge.

Circle of Caring services are coordinated by Berger Hospital with support from the United Way of Pickaway County, local churches and the community at large. To find out more, call (740) 474.7844.
