Make a real difference in someone's life!

Great Lakes Caring Hospice, a part of the Elara Caring Network, is looking for compassionate 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, singing, working on a craft project, sharing a special talent, or simply providing companionship through listening, talking or holding a hand. Volunteers can sometimes provide respite care, 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 Hospice patients in facilities. Dogs must be certified in order to visit patients.

Hours are flexible, weekdays, evenings, or weekends. Typically we ask that you visit your assigned patient 1-2 hours per week or offer 1-2 hours per week or work in the office.

For more information, contact Heather Marsh at 317-407-4210 or hmarsh@greatlakescaring.com.
