Veteran Salute

Grace Hospice is seeking military Veterans to be a part of our team! Veteran Volunteers are an integral and valued part of the team.

Veteran Volunteers provide that extra level of care and comfort that only a military Veteran can do. This is a relationship building program, where Volunteers and patients build a truly unique relationship, demanding nothing of each other except to be there and to be open.

At Grace Hospice we are committed to serving those who served. Our We Honor Veterans Program synchronizes the physical, psychological and spiritual needs of each veteran. We also offer military Veteran hospice patients recognition and pinning ceremonies to honor military service.

Whether you’ve had a family connection to hospice care and want to give back, or are interested in learning more about how to support and comfort those in their final days, I encourage you to explore this truly rewarding volunteer opportunity.

For more information on what you can do for hospice and what Grace Hospice can do for you, contact Marie, Volunteer Coordinator, at 616.432.2050 or mraymond@ghospice.com.

All Volunteers are afforded specialized training, given Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) as needed, become an integral part of the Grace Hospice care team and are provided direct support by the Volunteer Coordinator.

Grace Hospice adheres to CDC social distancing guidelines and agency protocols regarding COVID-19.

About Grace Hospice-Grand Rapids

Location:

3355 Eagle Park Dr. NE, Grand Rapids, MI 49525, US

Mission Statement

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.

Description

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
