Trillium House seeking volunteers
MARQUETTE — Trillium House is looking for volunteers to help ensure its hospice residents are safe and comfortable at the end of life.
“Right now we’re focusing on building a corps of Care Support volunteers,” said Executive Director Pat Bray in a press release. This volunteer role is designed to provide assistance to the organization’s staff for a few hours every day.
“These volunteers will help with cooking meals and assisting those who require help eating. They’ll also help with other jobs around the house including the laundry, cleaning, sitting with residents who welcome visitors, and other tasks that free up our care givers to be with residents,” Bray said.
The Marquette-based organization’s plan is to have three time slots each day of up to three hours centered around meal times. Volunteers will be requested to sign up for regular shifts and will be required to attend program training. These volunteers must undergo a criminal background check and receive a tuberculosis test.
For more information call 906-264-5026 or visit trilliumhospicehouse.org.
