2 people are interested
Grace Hospice is seeking volunteers to become a valuable part of our hospice team to provide patients through emotional and/or spiritual support.
Some things a volunteer might do is:
- Provide companionship
- Relieve family members for a much needed break (respite)
- Spiritual support
- Veteran to Veteran services
Hospice volunteers often express that their work with patients and families is a blessing. The inner knowledge and satisfaction a volunteer receives from knowing they have made a real difference in the life of a patient or family is what makes being a hospice volunteer special. To be invited into the last months, weeks, and days of a person's life is an honor and a privilege.
Make a difference in someone else 's life and your own as well!

About Grace Hospice-Grand Rapids
3355 Eagle Park Dr. NE, 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
We'll work with your schedule.
