Do you have the gift of speaking more than one language?
Do you have an hour or more a week to provide companionship to someone who is needing a friend?
Grace Hospice understands the impact that our Hospice Volunteers have on our patients and their families. Hearing their own language is an added form of comfort to many patients.
As a hospice team, we are dedicated and committed to meeting our patients and family’s needs, whatever those might mean.
Being a Hospice Volunteer is more than giving a few hours each week. It’s about giving of yourself in a way like no other. It is a relationship that enriches the patient’s life as well as the Volunteer's.
In order to provide the best opportunities of comfort and open communication for our patients and caregivers, we are seeking bi-lingual Volunteers.
Volunteers are afforded specialized training, given Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) as needed, become an integral part of the Grace Hospice care team and are provided direct support by the Volunteer Coordinator.
Are you ready to begin your new adventure into hospice care?
Contact the Grace Hospice Volunteer Coordinator today!

About Grace Hospice-Grand Rapids
3355 Eagle Park Dr. NE, Suite 102, Grand Rapids, MI 49525, US
For each employee to treat every patient as their own treasured loved one, providing care that affords a quality of life that outweighs quantity of days, and supports caregivers as their hearts find healing.
Hospice is a philosophy of caring for patients whose medical conditions are not responding to treatment or for those patients who choose not to seek aggressive medical care at the end stage of life. It is a program for patients who are considered terminal and are expected to live six months or less if the disease follows its natural course, although many patients outlive this time frame. The hospice philosophy focuses on comfort care not curative care. The goal of hospice care is for the patient to remain as comfortable and pain-free as possible in their own home or the home of a loved one through the end of life. Hospice care can also be provided in a long-term care facility or an assisted living facility
