Veterans have earned our respect!

Are you a Veteran? Do you want to provide support to fellow Veterans?

ProMedica Hospice is seeking Military Veteran Volunteers to visit with our Veteran patients in nursing communities or in their private homes. No one is better equipped to converse with our beloved Veterans than a comrade.

No experience required beyond a heart for your fellow Veteran. We have a comprehensive orientation and training program. Our office is in Westmont, but we match you with patients in your community.

We work with your schedule, so contact us and let's make a difference together!

Under "Volunteer Comments", please write why you are interested in this volunteer opportunity.

Mission Statement

Our Mission is to improve your health and well-being.

Description

Heartland Hospice volunteers offer support, companionship and practical, compassionate help. Some interact directly with patients and families. Others prefer to work behind the scenes in the office setting. As a volunteer, you help determine which tasks you’re best suited to perform. The tasks of volunteers include:

  • Helping with office support tasks at the agency
  • Running errands for patients and families
  • Staying with patients so family members can get a much-needed rest
  • Reading, or providing a comforting touch
  • Playing or singing soothing music to patients
  • Keeping vigil with patients in their final hours

These and other tasks are why hospice volunteers are such an essential part of the Heartland experience.
