About

Volunteers are the HEART of Heartland Hospice! We are looking for Veterans who live in Rockford, or a surrounding community, to join our growing team of volunteers! We recognize that Veterans share a special bond. The goal of our Vet-to-Vet Volunteer Program is to match Veteran patients with a hospice trained Veteran volunteer who may have a similar background. Veteran volunteers can provide friendly visits to Veteran patients and their families. Others may participate in our We Honor Veterans pinning ceremonies. As a volunteer, you help determine which tasks you’re best suited to perform. Hours are extremely flexible and scheduled according to your availability and location. If you've got a little extra time to give to a Veteran patient, call or email Heartland Volunteer Coordinator Janine today to learn more about our unique volunteer opportunities: 815-397-3691; janine.idstein@hcr-manorcare.com. Veteran Volunteer requirements: must be at least 18 years of age; agree to a background/reference check; have reliable transportation; and attend an orientation where you'll learn about the philosophy of hospice and our company, how to effectively communicate with our patients and their families, and the volunteer role.
