We offer programs to help those in hospice, their families and caregivers

How we do things at Hospice of Southwest Ohio

At Hospice of Southwest Ohio, in addition to providing dedicated care partners and support to those in need, we also offer a series of programs that helps patients and their families.

With a focus on servant leadership, our management team is heavily involved in our day-to-day work. It’s one reason we have one of the highest reputations for hospice care in the greater Cincinnati area.

Special services we offer for hospice patients

Bears of Love

Hand-made Bears of Love are given to those who are sick and hurting, bringing comfort to our community. Memorial bears are made for those who have lost a loved one, using an article of clothing that belonged to them.

Full-time musician

Our talented music minister creates a lively and joyous atmosphere in our Care Center in Madeira, and with our patients in their home or community, with flute and piano music, singing and gentle activity for patients.

Pet therapy

Our volunteers assist with patient visits from certified therapy pets, as they are great sources of companionship and comfort for the terminally ill.


A one-hour professional voice recording of a loved one’s life story and memories is preserved on disc for family members to enjoy for years to come.


When loved ones can’t be there in person, VGo comes to life. VGo is a robotic telepresence that can be used anywhere you are to communicate with a loved one in hospice care. We place VGo at your family member’s bedside so they can be with you when you’re far away or attending a special event like a holiday party or birthday.
