About

Make a real difference in someone's life!

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

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

There are also volunteer opportunities within the 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 Hopice patients in facilities. Dogs must be certified in order to visit patients.
