Centrica Care Navigators is looking for Pet Therapy dogs, and their humans, to share their unique gifts as a member of the care team offering support and comfort during this end-of-life journey. Pet Therapy dogs offer a calming and loving distraction for clients and their families as well as reduces anxiety and loneliness. As a Pet Therapy Volunteer, you and your dog choose your assignments and may visit any of the Arbors, Adult Day Services, or client’s home/facility in which they reside in any of the counties in which Centrica Care Navigators covers.
We require all dogs to be certified in order to become a volunteer. If you have a calm and friendly dog that you believe would be a great pet therapy dog, staff are more than willing to help walk you through the process if you wish to get your dog certified. And if you know of any Therapy Dog Teams, we will work with you and the team to organize a date or create an event to provide services to our clients.
Becoming a hospice volunteer could be the most rewarding experience of your life. Contact us today to learn more about this unique opportunity.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.

Our Mission: We guide and support individuals and their caregivers coping with illness, aging, dying, and loss by providing compassionate medical, emotional, spiritual, and personal care. Our Vision: Centrica Care Navigators will be the recognized leader in compassionate care for all people in our communities coping with aging, dying, and loss.
Originally founded as Hospice Care of Southwest Michigan, Centrica Care Navigators is a nonprofit organization that was created to serve the communities where we live. We focus on you as a whole person - not just your illness or disease - and surround you with a circle of care and compassion for your body, mind, and spirit. We’ve established a long legacy of innovating to provide a better, more comprehensive circle of care for you and your family. During our 40-plus years of caring for our community, we’ve continually expanded our services and reach to serve more of our neighbors at different points in their care journey.
We introduced the first inpatient hospice sites in our region. We are pioneers of delivering palliative care at home. Our adult day services give families vital support and freedom. And we’ll keep striving to improve as medical science and technology advance - all the while staying centered on your needs.
