Corsocare/Laurus Hospice is looking for Military Veterans who are interested in becoming a visiting companion for our hospice clients who also hold a Veteran status.

This role will partner you with another veteran to visit in their homes to provide companionship, a listening ear, story sharing, etc. Time commitment is flexible depending on volunteer availability and current clientele status. Our hospice volunteers have shared that they find their work to be personally gratifying and meaningful, and we hope that you will share in this experience.

Corsocare/Laurus Hospice is a proud Level 2 Member of the We Honor Veteran’s program through the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization.

We ask that new volunteers make a commitment to dedicate 4-6 hours per month to volunteering. We also ask that our volunteers make at least a three (3) month commitment to volunteering. Volunteers will be provided with ongoing one-on-one staff support throughout their service with us, and will be invited to ongoing education opportunities, and appreciation events. Our volunteers must complete an application, interview, background checks, an orientation class, fingerprinting, and TB testing.

Laurus Hospice will provide all PPE necessary to ensure you and your patient have a safe and enriching experience on every visit.

Many patients and families are forever changed by their hospice volunteer. Comprehensive hospice training and orientation is provided, free of charge, as well as ongoing support and hospice education opportunities. Should you have any questions, or need further information, please contact Jessi Hall, Regional Volunteer Coordinator, at (248)704-0396 OR jhall@laurushospice.com.

"The brave die never, though they sleep in dust: Their courage serves a thousand living men." -Minot J. Savage
