About

Make a real difference in someone's life!!

Great Lakes Caring Hospice, a leading care provider in the Midwest, is looking for compassionate volunteers willing to donate their time to provide exceptional end-of-lefe care to local hospice patients and their families.

Volunteers are needed to visit with patients and engage them in activities such as playing music, singing, working on a special craft project, or simply providing companionship through listening, talking, holding a hand. Volunteers can sometimes provide respite care, allowing family members to take a much needed break.

There are volunteer opportunities within Great Lakes Caring Hospice office, assisting staff with mailing, filing, data entry and other special projects.

Great Lakes Caring is also looking for pet therapy volunteers. These volunteers, along with their trained pet companions, visit Hopsice patients in facilities. Dogs must be certified in order to visit patients.

Hours are very flexible, weekdays, evenings or weekends. Typically we ask that you visit your assigned patient 1-2 hours per week or offer 1-2 hours per week working in the office.

For more information, contact Patricia at 574-377-4063, or email pfortier@greatlakescaring.com.

Thank you!
