About

Emmanuel Hospice is a very special, growing, faith-based, non-profit hospice located on the West side of Grand Rapids. We are a close knit team and our staff, volunteers, and patients are like FAMILY to us! Our patients ALWAYS come first. We serve patients all over West Michigan in private homes and in facilities. We were created as a collaboration of 4 retirement communities: Saint Ann’s, Porter Hills, Clark, and Sunset. We are also supported by the Carmelite Sisters of St. Ann's Home.

We welcome volunteers with an array of talents and skills including students studying healthcare related fields, administration, social work, marketing, and religion. Volunteers are always needed to visit with patients and to help in the office doing administrative work. Tasks may include providing a friendly visit to patients nearing end-of-life, providing bereavement support to those who have recently lost a loved one, or helping with administrative tasks in the office. No experience needed- WE WILL TRAIN YOU! We are also looking for individuals with special skills: beauticians, pet therapists, those with creative, artistic talents, and veterans (to visit with patients who are veterans). Volunteers are required to complete a background check, a TB test, and an orientation. Please contact Heidi at 616-719-0919, hpelton@emmanuelhospice.org. Volunteer applications are also on our website www.emmanuelhospice.org.

Please contact us if you are interested! We cannot wait for you to be a part of this amazing team!
