Genesys Hospice seeks volunteers

(GENESEE COUNTY, MI) Training for new Genesys Hospice volunteers begins Tuesday, Oct. 4, and continues every Tuesday and Thursday evening through Thursday, Oct. 27. Classes take place from 6 pm to 9 pm, at Genesys Hospice Care Center, located at 7280 S. State Road in Goodrich.
Hospice is considered a model for quality, compassionate care at the end of life. Through hospice, a team of professionals provides care to terminally ill patients and their caregivers. These volunteers offer companionship and assistance in patient homes, nursing homes or at the Genesys Hospice Care Center in Goodrich.

Volunteers are needed to visit patients at home, provide companionship, offer respite services for family members, assist with transportation needs, deliver or pick up medical equipment, write letters for patients, read to patients, help with light housework and offer bereavement and spiritual care.

Volunteers also help at the Genesys Hospice Care Center, a 22-bed residential facility located in Goodrich. These volunteers provide companionship, feed patients, assist with activities and fundraisers, and perform clerical or computer work.

The 24-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 Genesys Hospice volunteer, team, please contact the Volunteer department at (810) 636-5021. Pre-registration is required to attend training sessions. Prospective volunteers must attend all training sessions.
