Our pet therapy program is a win/win for our patients, our volunteers and their therapy animals. Our volunteers and their therapy animals visit patients throughout southeastern Michigan. Make a difference while providing comfort and a sense of well-being to ProMedica Hospice patients.
Volunteers must be at least 18-years-old to visit patients. ProMedica Hospice requires all volunteers to get the annual flu shot. Every volunteer, while visiting patients, must wear the surgical mask ProMedica provides. Volunteers must have the COVID vaccination. Volunteers must complete two TB skin tests (available for free in the ProMedica Ann Arbor office) and a fingerprint background check (all paid for by ProMedica). We provide extensive training to ensure volunteers are fully prepared for their work.

About ProMedica Hospice
1390 Eisenhower Place, Ann Arbor, MI 48108, US
ProMedica Hospice provides quality care to patients with a limited life expectancy, as well as support to their families and caregivers. Formerly known as Heartland Hospice, ProMedica Hospice is a nonprofit organization. We enhance the quality of life of those we serve through palliative and specialized supportive care designed to meet the physical, psychosocial, and spiritual needs of the patients and caregivers. Hospice care is provided by using an interdisciplinary approach in delivering care to patients--either in their own homes or extended care facilities--while working cooperatively with other health care providers and other community resources. ProMedica Hospice strives to provide care to all who are eligible and need hospice care irrespective of ability to pay.
ProMedica Hospice serves patients in Washtenaw, Livingston, Wayne, Oakland, Jackson and Ingham Counties in Michigan. ProMedica is a non-profit organization.
Hospice supports, cares for and comforts patients in the final stages of life, as well helping as their families. ProMedica serves patients wherever they call home, whether it is a private home or a nursing home or another facility. Hospice includes palliative care by nurses, as well as counseling for patient and family, and pastoral or spiritual support.
Hospice volunteers help patients and families by providing companionship, respite care and emotional or spiritual support, depending on the patient's needs.
