Being a Friend to Hospice Patients

Save to Favorites

Elara Caring

It may be the best couple hours you spend a week. For the end-of-life patients of ElaraCaring and Hospice, it is a treasured time of talk, tears, understanding, laughter and a caring, conversant companion to look forward to being with.

This opportunity is a relationship building experience. It is sure to enhance your life and you will look at things and life in a different way as a result of being a part of it.

Elara Caring staff is dedicated to providing the best end- of -life experience possible for our patients and their families. To do that we understand the importance that having someone who will support, listen and care for them does.

If you have just a few extra hours a week to part of our patient’s journey, please contact Julie at 571.740.9817 or email

Mission Statement

Elara Caring Hospice encourages a philosophy of care that assists patients, caregivers, family and friends during the final stages of terminal illness. We promote dignity and emphasize quality of life for those who choose to die in familiar surroundings with the ones they love. Right time, Right place, Right Hospice.


Time is our most precious gift. Share your gift with a Hospice patient.

Time is limited, yet of eternal value. What makes it so is how you use it and to whom you give it. Share your gift of time with a patient on their end-of-life journey. No special skills are necessary, just a listening ear and an open heart. It will be some of the most rewarding time you’ll ever spend.

We have patients in need in outlying areas as well as the Grand Rapids Area. These areas include Grand Rapids, Big Rapids, Wayland/ Hastings, Greenville, Rockford, Holland, and Saugatuck/Douglas.
