Corewell Health Hospice and Palliative Care West Michigan is honored to serve end-of-life patients and their loved ones thru out West Michigan. We provide physical, emotional and spiritual support to our patients as paid staff and our robust volunteer program. We seek additional volunteers who desire to impact their communities by serving our patients in unique and meaningful ways.
We encourage volunteers to join our program that are interested and willing to support patients and families near their geographic region (volunteers typically choose to support patients close to where they live or work). Our hospice currently provides care in 11 counties in West Michigan.
Most volunteers donate an hour per week; after completing the application and training process.
Our training program format allows 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.
The training program consists of two components to be completed after the application process:
The first component is a 5.5 hour on-line training consisting of 16 short educational sessions with competency quizzes. This component is flexible and can be done in 1 sitting or multiple log-ins within a maximum of 30day time limit to complete.
The second component is an 8 hour in-person orientation. These sessions are offered as a classroom style learning experience. They are scheduled multiple times thru out the year in a range of geographic areas in 1 day (8hrs) option or a 2 day (4hr/day) option.
The program is designed so that all of the requirements (IGRA TB test, flu shot, MMR, Varicella, adult Tdap vaccinations and fingerprinting) to become an active volunteer are built into the training class and all costs are covered by Corewell Health Hospice and Palliative Care West Michigan.
We will work with you to help you join our volunteer program and start supporting patients! 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: firstname.lastname@example.org .
