Volunteering with Brookdale Hospice
Brookdale Hospice is seeking compassionate individuals who want to make a difference by providing companionship visits to patients on hospice services. Volunteers may visit patients living at home and in nursing facilities. Volunteer companionship visits can include, but are not limited to reading with the patient, watching television or a movie, playing a game, going outside for fresh air or simply just being present and having a conversation. The need for companionship seems greater than ever, as we all emerge from so many months of not being able to see and touch those we love most. There is no physical care involved. Hours are flexible. If you are interested in making a difference please call Brookdale hospice (248) 727-2323 or email us at email@example.com

Brookdale Senior Living's Mission Statement is: Enriching the lives of those we serve with compassion, respect, excellence and integrity. Our Philosophy of Hospice is: * providing sensitivity and support for people and their families in the final phases of a terminal illness * enabling patients to carry on an alert, pain free life and to manage other symptoms so that they may have dignity, comfort and quality * recognizing dying as a natural part of life Hospice affirms life, neither hastening nor postponing death. Hospice is about living life to the fullest with dignity and comfort. Volunteers are an integral part, and are a fully integrated component, of our Brookdale hospice teams. Volunteering is more about BEING than DOING - it's about listening and offering support to our patients - it's about helping them tell their story.
