Help hospice patients feel and look their best: become a cosmetology volunteer! (Milwaukee)
4 people are interested
Sometimes it's the smallest of gestures that can make the most impact. Heartland Hospice is looking for professional, licensed cosmetologists to brighten a patient's day and lift their spirits by providing a fresh haircut, beard trim (for the gentlemen!) and possible styling, if requested. A haircut and friendly conversation can go a long way in helping home-bound patients look and feel their best. Providing these services is based around your availability and the patient's location.
This is a great way to give back to your community and reassure terminally-ill patients that they are genuinely cared for. Join the Heartland volunteer team today! We're waiting to hear from you.
All interested applicants must: be at least 18-years-old, have a current cosmetology license, fill out application paperwork, agree to a background and reference check, attend an orientation and complete two TB tests.
About Heartland Hospice

Heartland Hospice provides specialized care that meets the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of patients and loved ones facing the challenges of an advanced illness. The quality of life for those we serve is enhanced by encouraging personal choices, supporting meaningful experiences and preserving dignity. Every day, we enrich the lives of our patients and the people who love them by blending advanced medical care with a compassionate touch.
Heartland offers hospice services wherever a patient calls home, whether the care is provided in a home setting, assisted living facility or skilled nursing center. We are committed to providing comfort of the mind, body and spirit. Our specially trained staff helps manage pain and symptoms, thereby enabling patients to live their lives as fully as possible. In addition, our team members create a comforting environment and provide emotional support to families who need help coping with the loss of a loved one.
To serve as our guiding principles, we've created the Heartland Caring Promises: We promise to care for the mind, body and spirit. We promise to provide care that is comforting and compassionate. We promise to respect patient and family choices. We promise to unite with community partners in care. We promise to be accepting and supportive of patients wherever they are in life's journey.
The hospice volunteer program stresses human values that go beyond the physical needs of the patient. Our volunteers offer support, companionship and assistance with non-medical tasks to help this special group of people. The hospice volunteer program ensures that patients spend their final days in dignity and comfort and provide the extra love and care our clients and their families need at this time in their life.
