If you love music, love researching to make the perfect playlist for someone, then we are looking for you! Hospice of Michigan has launched a volunteer based program called, "My Music" which aims to reduce anxiety and create peace for dementia patients. Listening to music can transform a mood and can bring back joyful memories.
How you can help
We are looking for organized, creative volunteers who would work with us during office hours (anytime between 8 am - 5 pm, Monday - Friday) to build our music library and to create playlists for specific patients based on their case histories. We need help to with our musical inventory system and the check-out process. This is a statewide program and you would be collaborating with other volunteer My Music Librarians all over the state.
If you are interested, please apply to be a volunteer online at the Hospice of Michigan website. Include in your application that you are interested in the My Music Program.
Volunteer training is required as is a standard background check and reference check.
If you would like to speak with someone more about the program before applying, contact Alison Wagner, Director of Volunteer Services and Complimentary Therapies at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Together, we can promote peace and joy for patients!
