Grace Hospice is actively recruiting new volunteers - humans and pets! Obedient and socialized pets make excellent companions for our patients and tend to bring lots of smiles and joy to everyone. If you have a well-trained and friendly pet over the age of one who responds appropriately to verbal commands, please consider putting them to work at Grace! We would also love to connect with individuals with therapy-certified pets. We welcome your application.
As always, we seek openhearted adult volunteers to provide companionship and comfort to our patients and families. We ask volunteers to commit to 2-4 visits per month, and scheduling is very flexible. Volunteer functions vary and depend on areas of interest and experience. Roles include companionship, caregiver respite, legacy work, virtual bereavement support, and more. Training is provided at orientation and optional monthly educational workshops. At this time, we are especially eager to recruit volunteers interested in working with companion-seeking patients with dementia. Applications welcomed!
Thanks so much for your consideration. Please contact Grace Volunteer Services at GraceVolunteerServices@gracecaring.org, or call 612-238-0034.
