Provide an opportunity for patients receiving end-of-life care to have their memories/life stories recorded into a lasting keepsake. By guiding the patient through an interview process, their stories are typed out, assembled and bound along with accompanying pictures, into beautifully designed bound books. Materials and training is provided. Volunteer must have access and skills with computers. Volunteers especially needed in the Fremont, Grandville, Holland, Lakeshore, Ludington, Muskegon and Zeeland area. Volunteers are asked to wait one year after the death of a family member or friend before volunteering.
We offer a flexible Volunteer Orientation program!
This training program format will allow candidates to complete some of the required training thru an on-line program at your convenience and provide additional times and locations for the in-person training component. The goal is to shorten the on-boarding process and add more flexibility in the training process making it easier for interested individuals to join our volunteer program.
Effective 3/12/20 Spectrum Health instituted no in-person meetings policy to assist in avoiding the spread of this virus; therefore, we are suspending In-person Orientations.
At this time we also continue to have a suspension on In-person Volunteer support for our patients and families. Since March, 2020 our volunteers have been providing only Remote Volunteer support thru phone calls, written communication and virtual visits. We do not have a time expectation identified for when In-person Volunteer support will resume.
As we review the reality of when resuming In-person Volunteer Orientations will be allowed; we anticipate that it will be many months. Therefore, we are in the process of creating a Virtual format and will likely begin utilizing this format Winter of 2021.
Interested candidates are in the process of completing applications and the online training in order to be eligible to register for the upcoming Orientations when they are scheduled.
We will work with you to help you join our volunteer program and start supporting patients thru out our 11 county service area! Contact us to receive more information and application instructions. Call Yvonne at (616)391-4240 or toll free at 1-866-542-7945. Email us at: email@example.com .
