Elara Caring

Make a real difference in someone's life!

Elara Caring Hospice, a leading care provider in the Midwest, is looking for compassionate volunteers willing to donate their time to provide exceptional end-of-life care to local hospice patients and their families.

Elara Caring Hospice is looking for Pet Therapy volunteers (handlers with dogs only). A visit from a therapy dog can be so beneficial. Terminally ill patients enjoy the extra attention and unconditional love they feel from a four-legged companion. In order to volunteer and visit patients, you must have your own dog who is already certified through Therapy Dogs International, West Michigan Therapy Dogs or Bright and Beautiful Therapy Dogs.

Hours are very flexible, weekdays, evenings or weekends. Dog/Handler teams typically visit patients 1-2 times per month.

For more information, contact Michelle Storey @ 1-517-513-7008 or mstorey@elara.com
