Research has shown that music has a profound effect on our well-being. Hospice patients are no exception to this. At CorsoCare Hospice, we make a difference every day for patients and families coping with terminal illness while creating an opportunity for therapeutic support and well-being. As a music companion volunteer, you will partner with our Volunteer Coordinator or other support care team member to provide music that brings enjoyment, and life enrichment while promoting our patients’ well-being. The ideal music volunteer should enjoy singing, playing an instrument, or sharing recorded music with others. No music therapy experience or professional training needed. Hospice volunteers experience a great deal of satisfaction from their service and time with the patients they visit.

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.

CorsoCare 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 jessica.hall@corsocare.com.

"Songs express who we are and how we feel, they bring us closer to others, they keep us company when we are alone. They articulate our beliefs and values, and they bear witness to our lives. Songs weave tales of our joys and sorrows, they reveal our innermost secrets, and they express our hopes and disappointments, our fears and triumphs. They are our musical diaries, our life stories. They are the sounds of our personal development." -Dr. Kenneth Bruscia
