About

Great Lakes Caring Hospice is looking for Companion Volunteers who will visit patients in local nursing facilities or in private homes.

The Companion Volunteer will provide companionship by any of the following ways: play cards/games, watch TV, take the patient out into the garden area for fresh air (if you both desire), read to patient, etc. This is a companionship opportunity and there is no physical care involved during your visit.

Hours are very flexible, weekdays, evenings or weekends.

Typically, we ask that you visit your assigned patient 1-2 hours per week for at least a period of six months or more depending on your schedule. Interest applicants must take this orientation and fill out additional paperwork that includes a TB-test and fingerprinting.

For more information email lstulac@greatlakescaring.com or feel free to call 855-727-9111 ask for Volunteer Services.

Thank you for making a difference in our families life.
