Do you have a Big Heart, A Soft Touch & A Little Time to Listen? If you have one or all of these qualities please call and become a volunteer with Grace Hospice. Men or women, young or old can make a difference TODAY in the life of a hospice patient and their family. Volunteers spend time with a terminally ill patient doing enjoyable activities - reading, talking, engaging in a hobby. Volunteers help family members take a break to rejuvenate, go shopping, or keep appointments. Volunteers are often the highlight of someone's day. We also need volunteers for administrative work as well. You can find out more about us and do the application online at www.ghospice.com. Group and Individual trainings can be arranged. If you have a group that would be interested in training we will come to you to train. Begin your volunteer journey with Grace Hospice today! We have opportunities throughout the greater South Bend area!
About Grace Hospice of South Bend
5838 W. Brick Rd., Suite 101, South Bend, IN 46628, US
Our mission is 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.
Grace Hospice of Indiana is the first Grace Hospice in the state and has Nurses, CNA's/Hospice Aides, Social Workers, Chaplains and Volunteers that assist the patients and support their families wherever the patient considers their "home" to be.
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.
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.
We strive to improve the quality of life for all we serve including our patient's families, their neighbors, and the community they live in. We strive to make an impact with everyone we meet and improve the community as a whole.
Come make a difference with the first Grace Hospice of Indiana. This is an opportunity that will change your life.
We'll work with your schedule.
