Genesys Hospice seeks volunteers

(GENESEE COUNTY, MI) Training for new Genesys Hospice volunteers begins Tuesday, May 10, and runs through Thursday, June 2. Classes are held every Tuesday and Thursday from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., at Genesys Administrative Services Building, located at 5445 Ali Drive in Grand Blanc.
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.

Hospice volunteers who visit patients at their home will provide companionship, respite, transportation, medical equipment delivery and pick up services, letter writing, reading, light housework, and bereavement and spiritual care.

Volunteers who work at the Genesys Hospice Care Center in Goodrich will provide companionship, feed patients, assist with activities at the center, perform clerical and computer duties, and help with fundraising events.

For more information on Genesys Hospice volunteer opportunities, or to sign up for training, call 810-636-5021. Pre-registration is necessary.
