About

Our hope is that no one dies alone.

The goal of the Heartland Hospice Vigil Volunteer Program is to connect patients with a volunteer to sit vigil, offering support and a comforting presence, during their final hours.

This may be simply being present with the patient who is dying without family members or friends available or providing support to family members who need a break from the bedside of their loved one.

Our Vigil Volunteer Program is more of an "on-call" volunteer opportunity; vigil support is requested only as needed. Consideration is given to the volunteer's location and availability when scheduling Vigil Volunteer assignments.

Together, our volunteers and staff strive to make life as comfortable as possible to the last moment.
