TRAIN REMOTELY! If you have extra time on your hands and would like to give back to your community when life resumes to normal, contact me. I am setting up Zoom (live on-line) training to help get individuals through the training process now, so we have ample Volunteer staff ready when restrictions are lifted.

Is your pet a "Therapy Dog International" or "Pet Partner" registered animal? We would love to train you to visit hospice patients with your special pet partner.

Pet therapy builds on the pre-existing human-animal bond. Interacting with a friendly pet can help release endorphins that produce a calming effect for our patients. Animals bring joy and comfort, and can help to relax those experiencing physical or mental issues .

Please consider Heartland Hospice as your Volunteer choice, and contact us today! We work with your schedule, and location.

Description

Hospice isn't a place. It's a philosophy of care. Our mission is called enriching life.

Heartland Hospice is dedicated to providing patients with care wherever they consider home. Whether care is desired in the home a patient has lived in for years, a skilled nursing center or an assisted living facility, we tailor our caregiving to fit the patient's and family's unique needs.

Heartland's caregivers enrich our patients' lives and provide support by developing individualized care plans, setting goals, encouraging personal choices, working together in caregiving decisions and supporting meaningful experiences. Our caregivers help manage pain and symptoms, enabling patients to live life as fully and comfortably as possible. Social workers and spiritual counselors create a comforting environment in which patients and families are able to share their thoughts, hopes and concerns. And special bereavement programs provide emotional support to patients and families who need help coping.

Heartland Hospice supports the patient and family wherever they are in their health care journey, and upholds the patient's and family's wishes, goals and values. At Heartland, we help preserve our patients' dignity, show them the respect that they richly deserve and provide compassionate care through our Caring Promises.
