Heartland Home Health Care and Hospice

  • 8 people are interested

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.

You visit people close to your home. Please join us in helping others.

Mission Statement

Mission Statement Heartland Home Health Care and Hospice is a growth company dedicated to providing compassionate high quality home health care. We will achieve this by recruiting professional, caring staff; encouraging our patients to become active particiapnts in their care; and by creating an atmosphere of supportive leadership. We value strong, mutually beneficial relationships with our referral sources, employees, patients and families and the community at large.

Description

It's caring for the patient's mind, body and spirit. It's knowing there are no pat answers or universal solutions when it comes to patient care - all patients are different, and all care is different. Enriching the lives of Heartland patients and their loved ones is so much the essence of the Heartland brand, our tagline has become "Enriching Life." Those two words are the first thing we should consider when we come to work each day. How can we enrich lives? The answer is in all of us.
