HopeBridge Hospice in Solon. We are interested in finding volunteers with certified therapy dogs to visit some of our patients. We have patients in Aurora, Cuyahoga Falls, and Macedonia at the present time. All of our volunteers are required to be 18 yrs of age or older, have a background check and physical done at our expense, and do a brief orientation. If you know of anyone who is interested in volunteering with us, please let me know by email or by my cell phone (330) 322-0635. Thank you! Nancy Ludwick, RN, Volunteer Coordinator, HopeBridge Hospice.
