We understand college and high school can be stressful and demanding. Certain programs require volunteer hours from their students and Grace Hospice of South Bend is here to help! We really appreciate when volunteers come in and give us a helping hand. Did you know as an administrative volunteer that you will do a lot more than just file charts and organize? You could make gifts for patients and their families, you could run errands for the nurses and home health aides, and you could help recruit more volunteers! You will do a lot more than just sit in the office and stare at a computer, you will help enrich our patient's lives and their families. Administrative volunteering is not for you? We have opportunities to visit our patients in local facilities or their own homes. Wherever a patient considers home is where we go. You have the opportunity to spend time with a patient by reading to them, talking about their past, watching tv and sometimes just sitting with them while they nap. The last sense to go is hearing so even when you do not believe they are listening, they are. Both of these volunteer opportunities are extremely flexible and only requires a couple hours a week or a month. So stop by the office today or even better call Haley directly at 574-208-9280 . She will look forward to hearing from you.
Ghospice.com is where you will find the application for volunteering.

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.
