Hospice Volunteering

St. Joseph Mercy Hospice is currently seeking caring, compassionate individuals who are interested in providing respite support to our Hospice families. A time commitment of 2-4 hours per week for a minimum of 6 months is requested. Training is offered three times a year in both the Livingston and Ann Arbor offices. Check out the list of available opportunities. If you are interested or would like more information please call 734-327-3410 or 517-540-9129.

Volunteers are a vital and necessary part of the Hospice team. Volunteers, along with other members of the Hospice team, help ensure quality of life for our Hospice patients and their families. Hospice volunteers are trained to support the Hospice clinical staff, patients and families during a difficult time of life.
