Grace Hospice is seeking Veterans to be part of our Vet-to-Vet program.

This is a program designed around the unique fellowship and brotherhood of Vets.

We unstand the importance of life review at the end of life, and we aim to provide a safe environment for each of our patients to explore, remember, and express thoughts and feelings for a peaceful transition.

Vet-to-Vet volunteer program allows closure and a brotherhood like no other program.

Specialized training is provided by Grace Hospice to ensure that they are comfortable with their assigned tasks. Training is free of charge.

If you are a active military, or retired Veteran who would like to part of something great, contact Grace Hospice today!

About Grace Hospice-Grand Rapids

Location:

3355 Eagle Park Dr. NE, Grand Rapids, MI 49525, US

Mission Statement

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.

Description

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
