About

Volunteers are the HEART of Heartland Hospice! We are looking for more special individuals who live in Grafton, or a surrounding area, to join our growing team of superstar hospice volunteers! Companion volunteers enrich the lives of our hospice patients through regular one-on-one visits, which may involve playing games, enjoying a leisurely stroll around the nursing home/assisted-living facility or just engaging in lively conversation. Service hours are extremely flexible and scheduled according to your availability and location. You have the power to bring the greatest gifts to our patients’ lives... a smile and reassurance that comes with knowing they are genuinely cared for!

If you've got a little extra time to give, a big heart and want to hear someone's life story, this unique volunteer opportunity is for you!

All applicants must be at least 18-years-old (or 16 if accompanied by a guardian or parent), fill out initial application paperwork, agree to a background and reference check, attend a volunteer orientation and complete two TB tests.
