Make a difference – be a Hospice Volunteer!
Reverence Home Health & Hospice seeks volunteers for its home hospice program in Genesee and surrounding counties.
Training for new volunteers will be every Monday and Wednesday from 1-4 pm for two weeks beginning April 13, 2015, ending on April 22, 2015. Classes will be held at:
Genesys Administrative Services Bldg, (GASB) 5445 Ali Dr, Grand Blanc, MI 48439
(Pre-registration is required and all sessions must be attended to begin volunteering.)
Hospice is considered to be a model for quality, compassionate care at the end of life. Through hospice, a team of professionals provide care to terminally ill patients and their caregivers – and volunteers are at the heart of the Reverence Home Health & Hospice team! Volunteers provide vigil care, companionship and assistance in patient’s homes and area nursing homes, providing an extra layer of support to those patients and their families.
Volunteers are needed to visit patients’ homes to provide companionship, respite for caregivers, transportation to and from appointments, write letters, read to patients, and provide light housework and/or handyman services.
The 12-hour training focuses on the hospice philosophy, developing listening skills, gaining awareness of feelings regarding death and dying, patient care, spiritual care and bereavement.
If you are interested in becoming part of the Reverence Home Health & Hospice team or for more information, please contact the Volunteer Department at (810) 695-7796.
Please register by Friday, April 10
