About

One hour a week, that is all it takes to make a difference to someone in your community.

At Heartland Hospice the opportunities for volunteers to make a difference are as varied and individual as the volunteers themselves. There are many ways to support hospice and give that extra special touch to our patients and families.

The following are some of the many roles a volunteer can perform:

Visit a patient or relieve a family member

Reading scripture to the patient

Companionship for the patient

Reading aloud to the patient

Listening to music together

Holding a patients hand

Sharing a quiet moment together

After completing required hospice volunteer training and several background checks, volunteers are given information of potential patients and asked if they feel that the patient is one that they would want to be assigned to. Patient assignments are always within a reasonable distance from the location that you have chosen to serve. Classes include philosophy of hospice, communication skills, patient care, patient and volunteer rights and other topics. We ask for a commitment of only 1 hours per week.

Please join us in helping others.
