Genesys seeks volunteers to work with Hospice patients

(GENESEE COUNTY, MI) Training for new Genesys Hospice volunteers begins Tuesday, June 5 and continues every Tuesday and Thursday evening from 6 pm to 9 pm through June 28. Classes are held at the Genesys Administrative Services building (GASB) at 5445 Ali Drive in Grand Blanc.
Volunteers who visit hospice patients in their home will provide companionship, respite and transportation. They also will help deliver and pick up medical equipment, write letters for patients, read to patients, perform light housework duties, and offer bereavement and spiritual care support.

Volunteers also are needed for patients at the Genesys Hospice Care Center in Goodrich, a 22-bed facility that provides residential hospice care for the terminally ill as well as inpatient care for symptom management. Volunteers at the center will provide companionship, feed patients, assist with activities and fundraisers, and perform clerical duties and computer work.

The 24-hours of training focus on the hospice philosophy, developing listening skills, gaining awareness of feelings regarding death and dying, patient care, spiritual care and bereavement.

For more information or to sign up, call Genesys Hospice at 636-5021. Registration deadline is Friday, May 25.
