Volunteers are the HEART of Heartland Hospice!
Through our Veterans Companion Program, veterans can support other veterans who are terminally ill. We recognize that veterans share a special bond and will match you with a veteran who needs your support. Read a story about how a veteran volunteer made all the difference to a veteran patient: http://www.heartlandhospice.com/media/575890/Veteran-Volunteer-Honors-Veteran-Patient-With-Picture.pdf
Heartland Hospice Volunteers bring the gift of friendship to terminally ill patients. Volunteers offer companionship, lend an ear, share experiences & stories, hold a hand, give a needed hug, and offer words of comfort. If you've got a little extra time to give, a big heart and want to hear someone's life story, call or email Heartland Volunteer Coordinator Amy today to learn more about our unique volunteer opportunities: 800-236-1989; firstname.lastname@example.org. We're waiting to hear from you!
Volunteer hours are flexible and opportunities are scheduled according to personality/needs of patient and volunteer, location and availability.
Requirements: Must be 18 years or older; agree to a background/reference check; and attend an orientation to learn more about the philosophy of hospice and our company, the role of the volunteer and communicating with hospice patients and their families.. Travel is required for this volunteer opportunity, so volunteers must have some form of reliable transportation.
