Volunteers are the heart of hospice, and volunteering with Faith Hospice could be the most meaningful thing you ever do. By helping us provide compassion, comfort, and care to those at the end of life, you will be enriching your own life as well. There are many ways to serve—we will help you identify an opportunity that takes advantage of your skills, your talents, and your interests. We look forward to welcoming you to our Faith Hospice volunteer family.
WAYS TO SERVE
One does not need a special talent or expertise to make a difference in the lives of hospice patients. All that is needed is a kind servant's heart. Here are a few ways hospice volunteers can make an impact:
Offering companionship by sitting, playing games, walking, or reading with a patient
Joining our 11th Hour volunteer team to support and pray with patients during their last hours
Bringing music into someone’s home or providing pet visits
Administrative tasks such as greeting our guests or office help
Providing relief for caregivers
Assisting families with household tasks (such as watering flowers or housekeeping)
Capturing life memories and legacy creation through scrapbooking, audio recording, or journaling
We also welcome indirect volunteers with opportunities that include:
Service projects such as making handmade cards, weighted blankets, and fidget mats
Sewing projects—quilts, pillowcases, and more
Our Cookie Ministry at Trillium Woods
If there’s a particular way you would like to help, please let us know. Days and hours are flexible—it is always a good time to serve someone in need.
TRAINING AND SUPPORT
All of our volunteers begin by taking part in a specialized training program designed to be completed online for your convenience.
Our volunteer coordinators will make sure you feel comfortable discussing end-of-life care
and providing support to patients and loved ones.
If you have a heart for helping others, please call (616) 356-4835 to find out how you can become a Faith Hospice volunteer.
If you have suffered a personal loss recently, please accept our condolences. Keep in mind that while there are many administrative and virtual opportunities available, we suggest that you wait a year before volunteering for direct patient-related hospice opportunities.
