Heartland Hospice serves patients who are in a difficult stage of life, and we strive to assist the entire family with the clinical, emotional, spiritual and practical support that they need. The burden of caregiving often taxes the caregiver; volunteers can offer much needed support through the assistance of light housecleaning, yard work, running errands, and meal preparation. Volunteers make their own schedule, and typically we ask volunteers to commit to a 2-4 hour shift once or twice a month for the duration of the patient's stay on hospice service.

Comprehensive training and support is offered to our volunteers. Our office is in the Nora area, but we serve families throughout Central Indiana. Volunteers must be 18 years of age or older, and provide their own transportation.

To inquire further or to arrange an interview, please call Volunteer Coordinator, Cheryl Forrester at 317-251-3012.
