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-life care to local hospice patients and their families.

Great Lakes Caring Hospice is looking for Companion Volunteers who will visit patients in local nursing facilities or in private homes. The Companion Volunteer will provide companionship, play cards/games, watch TV, take the patient into the garden area for fresh air, read to the patient, etc. There is no physical care involved. Hours are 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 to work in the office.

Counties for opportunities to volunteer include: Kosciusko, Marshall, Huntington, DeKalb, Wabash, and Fulton
