Volunteer Opportunities at MidMichigan Home Care & Hospice

A Special Way of Caring

MidMichigan Home Care provides skilled services, hospice care, home infusion and more to patients in Northern and the middle of Michigan.

MidMichigan Home Care volunteers provide the additional generous touches that help to ensure patients' dignity, comfort and sense of fulfillment. Volunteers have the opportunity to work on either in-office projects or with hospice patients served by MidMichigan.

Hospice Volunteers Help in Many Ways

People who are receiving hospice services at home may need help performing errands and chores, or may enjoy a chat with a friendly visitor. Sometimes family members need rest from the responsibilities of care-giving, and volunteers can provide this respite. Volunteers also assist with special events and projects to brighten hospice patients' lives.

There are many ways to help, depending on your interests and talents:

  • Respite Care - Relief for patients' caregivers
  • Errands
  • Companionship
  • Delivering necessary medical supplies
  • Spiritual Care
  • Homemaking
  • Office/Clerical Assistance
  • Community Education
  • Fundraising
  • Handyman Jobs
  • Hairdresser/Styling
  • Hospice Bereavement Work - Providing additional comfort after a patient's death
