Please volunteer. Volunteers from diverse backgrounds come to Hospice Care of Southwest Michigan with one shared passion: a willingness to give of themselves.

Above, hospice client Belmonte tells a dramatic part of his life story as hospice volunteer Jim Spurr asks questions and records (the recording device is in his hand). 

Journey’s grief support for children and teens is fortunate to have these two longtime friends, Lynn, and Dee Ann, as volunteers.

Our popular pet therapy calendar is a great way to promote this program which enriches the quality of life for our hospice clients and Adult Day Services at Oakland Centre guests. Email us if you would like to purchase a calendar to benefit Hospice Care of Southwest Michigan’s programs.
