Volunteers are literally, the heart of Hospice of Michigan, providing a special kind of caring and compassion for our patients and their families. Every day, more than 1,100 of our volunteers across the state make a difference in the lives of so many people. Whether it’s offering a listening ear to patients and families, assisting with daily household activities for patients, providing grief support, companioning to loved ones or sharing their personal expertise to help promote hospice care, the hours given to Hospice of Michigan families by our volunteers can be the most rewarding experiences of their lives.
Volunteers fill many important roles at Hospice of Michigan, including patient care, grief support, community outreach and office administration.
Hospice of Michigan’s training sessions are offered throughout the state. For those who have experienced a loss, Hospice of Michigan encourages a waiting period of one year prior to becoming a volunteer, to allow for processing of grief.
In most instances, volunteer positions are available for office assistance and in direct patient care. View volunteer training times and locations around the state.
