Grace Hospice understands the impact that our Volunteers have on our patients and their families. 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 provides a unique relationship that enriches the patient’s life as well as the Volunteer. The hours are flexible and able to work around the Volunteer's availability.
Our Volunteers are provided training specific to hospice patients' needs and to ensure that the Volunteer is comfortable with their assigned tasks.
Volunteers meet with patients wherever the patients are located, whether in the home or in a facility.
If you have a few extra hours a week and would like to be a part of something remarkable, contact the Volunteer Coordinator, Marie Raymond, at Grace Hospice today! Simply respond to this post or contact the office directly at 616.432.2050.

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
