Great Lakes Loves Volunteers!

About

Great Lakes 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.

Volunteers are needed to visit with patients and engage them in activities such as playing music or singing, working on a craft project or sharing a special talent, or simply providing companionship through listening, talking, or holding a hand. They often provide respite care, allowing family members and caregivers to take a much-needed break. There are also volunteer opportunities within the Great Lakes Caring Hospice office assisting staff with mailings, filing, computer work, and other special projects. Additionally, volunteers can offer their time by making home comfort items, such as slippers, shawls, blankets, and dolls, or giving vigil and bereavement support. Great Lakes Caring is also looking for pet therapy volunteers. Those volunteers and their trained and certified therapy dog companions visit patients who miss the special relationship they had with their own pets.

Hours are flexible, and varying commitment times are offered.

For more information about volunteering or to register for volunteer orientation, please contact your local volunteer coordinator, Kristin Jensen by phone at 517-745-6681 or by e-mail at kjensen@GreatLakesCaring.com .
