ORGANIZATION: Beacon Hospice of Michigan
Please visit the new page to apply.
Hospice volunteers provide vital companionship to a patient, enriching their quality of life by simply being present. They sit with patients and read to them, listen to their stories, play music or sing, pray, knit, play cards, or simply be present.
Currently, volunteers may visit patients living at home and in some nursing facilities. Beacon Hospice is seeking volunteers to sit and visit with patients.
