Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Michigan Hospice provides an individualized program of physical, emotional, spiritual, and practical care for people in the last phases of a life-limiting illness, with an emphasis on pain control and other symptoms. The program is reflective of a spirit and idea of caring that emphasizes comfort and dignity for the dying, making it possible for them to remain independent for as long as possible, and in familiar surroundings. Hospice care is centered on the patient, resident, and family/caregiver, and hospice personnel respect and respond to the unique differences in family/caregiver, lifestyle, values, and wishes.
Michigan Hospice Volunteers may work in a variety of capacities, including:
1. Patient Care Volunteers provide personal care or emotional support and practical assistance, which enhance the comfort and quality of life for patients and families/caregivers. These services include being available for companionship, listening, simply "being there", and preparing meals. Patient care volunteers may also provide relief for caregivers or assist them with household chores.
2. Bereavement Volunteers provide anticipatory counseling and bereavement support to families/caregivers.
3. Errand Volunteers offer a type of practical support often needed by hospice patients and families/caregivers. These duties may include picking up needed prescriptions or supplies, or grocery shopping.
4. Office Volunteers lend their services working in Michigan Hospice's administrative offices. These activities may include assembling information packets, filing, photocopying, and assisting with mailings.
