Respite Volunteer for Hospice Caregiver - Gowen, MI

Save to Favorites

Grace Hospice-Grand Rapids

Hospice Volunteer

Grace Hospice is seeking volunteers to join our team!

We provide end of life care and support to our patients and their families.

Among providing support and companionship to our patients, our volunteers can also provide respite visits to the patient, which allows the family and caregiver a much needed break. This type of visit is essential in order for the caregiver to continue providing the love and support to the patient.

This is a flexible position, only a few hours a week or bi-weekly.

Volunteers are provided with training and resources to support them in their volunteer roles.

If you have been looking for a way to give back that is beneficial to others, this is the position for you!

Please contact the Volunteer Coordinator at Grace Hospice today.

You will be glad you did!

About Grace Hospice-Grand Rapids

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
