BE A FRIENDLY VISITOR! Use your people skills to brighten the life of a lonely or homebound senior. These visits can include lots of great conversation, playing cards, video or board games, reading a book or newspaper to your client or even just taking a walk. Just one short visit a week can be lifechanging for older adults. Spectrum Health Visiting Nurse Association has provided compassionate, highly skilled home care to patients in West Michigan for over 100 years. Our Volunteer Services department is looking for you if you have a passion for seniors, great communication skills, a positive attitude and would enjoy providing friendly visits to clients in their homes!

Mission Statement

To improve the health status, promote independence and enhance the quality of life for individuals and families in Western Michigan by providing high quality healthcare and rehabilitative and supportive services in the home and in the community.

We will accomplish this through partnerships with other providers in a seamless continuum which promotes patient care in the most appropriate, cost effective, and least restrictive setting.


Visiting Nurse offers a comprehensive program of home health care with coordinated services from our nurses, therapists, social workers, home health aides and volunteers.

We base our services on an assessment of the total needs--medical, social, psycological, spiritual--of both the patient and family.

Visiting nurse is a not-for-profit, community-based organization dedicated to meeting the health care needs of people and their families at home regardless of age, race, sex, religion, national origin, color, handicap, diagnosis, or ability to pay.
