About

Volunteers are the HEART of Heartland Hospice! Do you know how to play an instrument and/or enjoy singing? We are looking for more special individuals in Milwaukee, Wauwatosa or a surrounding community, to join our growing team of superstar volunteers! Musician volunteers enrich the lives of hospice patients in their area by sharing their talents during regular visits. In addition to providing music, volunteers offer much-needed socialization and one-on-one support. Service hours are extremely flexible and scheduled according to your availability and location.

Musician volunteers have the power to bring the greatest gifts to our patients’ lives... uplifting music, a smile and reassurance that comes with knowing they are genuinely cared for! If you have a little extra time to give to share your love of melody, and have a big heart, contact us today to learn more about this unique volunteer opportunity.
