Hospice Student Companions

Though many pre-health students
spend much of their time focused on
acing their organic chemistry exams
and MCATS, one student group is
working to give them a way to spend
their free time that may help in their
future careers.
Founded during the 2007-2008
school year, Hospice Student Com-
panions allows students to volunteer
at nursing homes and work with hos-
pice patients.
The goal of the group is to make
students more aware of patients liv-
ing in hospice, and to create an arena
for students to volunteer their ser-
vices, according to LSA senior Anna
Chase, co-founder and president of
Hospice Student Companions.
The club works with the Howell-
based nursing home, the Howell Care
Center, where volunteers visitpatients,
most of whom are 85 years of age and
older and are given six months or less
to live, according to Chase. Some stu-

dents also visit hospice patients in
their ownhomes, she said.
Prior to the club's formation,
working with hospice patients was
typically an option reserved only for
pre-med students. Chase said the club
was created so that all students who
express an interest in the medical
field can volunteer.
"The actual volunteer work is my
favorite," Chase said. "I love when
you walk into the room and see the
patient light up and smile."
The club has about 40 members
who are trained to become hospice
volunteers by professionals from in-
House Hospice, located in Southfield,
Mich.
Chase said student volunteers play
an important role in hospice patients'
lives by providing them with com-
panionship. Most volunteers work
one-on-one with a patient once a
week. During this time they talk, play
cards or help the patient create a "life

review," which is a journal document-
ing the patient's life memories.
In addition to educating the cam-
pus community on the importance
of hospice patients through the club,
Chase also said she hopes to organize
seminars on grief management to
educate the community.
Kinesiology junior Christina
Monolo, a member of Hospice Student
Companions, volunteers at the Hill-
side Terrace Nursing Home. Monolo,
a pre-med student, said she wanted
to get volunteer experience working
with patients but was hesitant to vol-
unteer at a hospital because she want-
ed to work directly with the patients
rather than do remedial tasks.
"I wanted to volunteer with hos-
pice patients because I wanted to
be the last impression on their life,"
Monolo said. "My favorite part of vol-
unteering is being the highlightof the
patient's week and makingtheir day."
