What can being a HarmonyCares Hospice Volunteer do for you?
Volunteering engages you to step outside of yourself for a minute and allows you to look at others and the world in general through a different lens. It also can help promote your emotional and spiritual growth.
It can promote a deep sense of purpose, help reduce stress and anxiety and promote a connection to others.
Some Volunteers have expressed they feel a connection and closeness to the family members and the opportunity to be part of what is typically a very private, intimate time.
For some, it can be a way of "paying it forward" and cherishing the memory of a loved one they have lost.
Whatever the reason, being a HarmonyCares Hospice Volunteer will not only change the lives of our patients and families, it will change your life too!
For more information about being part of the HarmonyCares Hospice team, respond to connect with the Volunteer Coordinator today!
All Volunteers are afforded specialized training, given Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) as needed, become an integral part of the HarmonyCares Hospice care team and are provided direct support by the Volunteer Coordinator.
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
