Grace Hospice

Grace Hospice is seeking compassionate, caring individuals to provide companionship and support for our terminally ill patients within the facility setting. Volunteers visit with our patients to offer a friendly smile and provide much needed companionship for someone who is facing a terminal illness. Often times, patients simply want someone to talk with. Reading, playing music from an electronic device, holding hands, praying, and singing are all examples of how you can connect with patients who are unable to communicate verbally.

About Grace Hospice Marysville

Location:

1985 Gratiot Ave, Suite 1c, Marysville, MI 48040, 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

The goal of Hospice care is for the patient to remain as comfortable and pain free as possible during their illness. Another primary goal of Grace Hospice is to allow the patient to remain 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. Our volunteers help us achieve this goal by providing additional support and companionship to the patient and their family members at a time when they need it the most. We are a Level Four partner with We Honor Veterans.
