About Hospice

Hospice is an extensive Program for anyone with a diagnosis or decline in health that could limit their life expectancy to 6 months or less if the disease/decline runs its normal course.

Our Mission

Making a difference by providing care from our heart to enhance the quality of life for those with life-limiting illnesses and their loved ones.

Our Volunteer Program

At Heart to Heart Hospice our volunteers are a vital part of our hospice team. Together we can help improve the quality of life for hospice patients.

Volunteers provide service to patients in a number of different ways. Depending on your interests, skills, talents, and the amount of time you have, there are a variety of ways that you can help.

Some of the ways our volunteers make a difference in the lives of patients are through......

  • Respite/Break for the caregiver
  • Companionship
  • Activities
  • Pet Therapy
  • Clerical/Office Work

All volunteers receive orientation and training to ensure they feel comfortable with their tasks. Training is held at our office in Flint at a time convenient for the perspective volunteer. Training is approximately 3 hours and generally covers the following areas:

  • Philosophy of hospice care
  • A comprehensive overview of services offered by the hospice
  • Physical, emotional, social, and spiritual issues that people can encounter at the end of life
  • An overview of chronic and life-limiting illnesses
  • Effective communication skills when speaking with the patient and family members
  • Information about interpersonal family issues and relationships
  • Basic information about grief and loss

Volunteers are required to be fingerprinted, have a background checks, and receive the two-step TB tests. There is no cost involved to the volunteer. However, we ask that the volunteer commit to being available one time a week for at least one year. Volunteers must be 18 or older and must provide their own transportation. All volunteers must have covid vaccinated or have an excuse waiver.
