Welcome to the McLaren Hospice Volunteers Web Site
It is with great pleasure and excitement that we welcome you to McLaren Hospice Volunteer web site. Here you’ll learn about what many volunteers who are involved in various areas of the program are doing to help patients and families.
Staff and volunteers often refer to their hospice work by using the words such as "journey," "mission," "process," "growth," and "catharsis." If you choose to join us, you may find yourself viewing your contribution in this way.
To be certain, this volunteer opportunity will be unlike any other you may have been involved in previously. We fervently hope you will discover the magic and beauty inherent in hospice care.
Within hospice there are many volunteer opportunities available. If you choose to begin with one activity but decide another one is more appealing, you are free to do what you’d like. Remember, there are no "one way streets" here.
During your time with us, we want to provide you with the skills and knowledge you need to accomplish your job well. We wish to provide adequate support and encouragement along the way. Please feel free to share any questions you may have.
This web site was developed by McLaren Hospice Volunteer Coordinators and other hospice staff and McLaren Health Care support with your needs in mind. The site provides a solid foundation of information for you.
You will have a firm knowledge of key concepts and information in order to accomplish your work well. Once again, we are happy you chose to visit us. We look forward to working with you and sharing the hospice journey together.
