Become a Hospice Volunteer
Great Lakes Caring Hospice, a leading care provider in the Midwest, is looking to add volunteers to our team. We are searching for volunteers who are passionate about making a difference, self-motivated, brimming with creativity and up for a challenge.
Providing end of life care for patients and families is no easy task. Volunteers will learn to embrace the hospice philosophy as they navigate end of life care. Companion Volunteers offer friendly visits and socialization to Hospice patients at the bedside, and offer caregivers a much needed break by offering respite support.
Each patient is unique, and visits vary greatly. One volunteer might sit vigil at the bedside of his patient, just holding her hand. Another volunteer might share a love for building model airplanes with his patient, and set out to build one last plane. And yet another might meet family members in the home or at the bedside, and listen to them recount stories of their loved one’s golden years.
