Hospice of Michigan is West Michigan's original hospice provider. For more than 35 years, this non-profit organization has been committed to the mission of providing quality end-of-life care for all regardless of age, diagnosis, or ability to pay.

As a pioneer in end-of-life care, Hospice of Michigan is integrating new approaches to provide comfort at end of life. It's what they call "complementary therapies."

We wanted to know what that means, so we sat down with Alison Wagner, the Statewide Director of Volunteer Services and Complementary Therapies for Hospice of Michigan, and volunteer Judy Cody and her dog Sophie.

If you’d like to volunteer for Hospice of Michigan, there is an application on their website to get you started.
