Do you have the gift of music? Would you like bring comfort, joy and even peace to a HarmonyCares Hospice patient through music?
At HarmonyCares Hospice we realize when music offered to those at the end of life, along with other healing efforts, aids with the physical, emotional, cognitive, spiritual, and social needs of hospice patients.
Music has been proven to relax and soothe patients. It often reaches them on a level that other therapies are not able to.
If you play a musical instrument, have time in you schedule, and have the desire to enhance the quality of life of hospice patients.....this may be for you!
All HarmonyCaresHospice Volunteers are provided training and are fully supported by the Volunteer Coordinator.
Would you like more information? Or would you like to get started right away?
Be sure to respond to connect with the Volunteer Coordinator. You will be glad you did!
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
About HarmonyCares Hospice-Grand Rapids
3355 Eagle Park Dr. NE, Suite 102, 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
