Heartland Hospice has been awarded a level II status in the "We Honor Veterans" Program. We are actively recruiting Veteran Volunteers to pair with hospice patients who have been identified as Veterans. Once paired with hospice patients who also have military experience, Veteran Volunteers have the unique ability to relate and connect with each patient thereby creating an environment where life review and healing may occur. Volunteers are given mandatory training and background checks. Please call 800-275-4517 for more information.
