About

Heartland Hospice is currently seeking volunteers to provide comfort to patients at the very end of their lives.

Vigil volunteers have the privelege of being with patients as they transition into the final stages of the dying process. Vigil volunteers are an asset to hospice patients by providing comfort, compassion, and care at the very end of life. Patients in facilities also benefit from these compassionate individuals as the volunteers are able to keep a watchful eye on patients to ensure that they are comfortable and alert facility staff if there are any problems.

Vigil volunteers are a special group of people that must feel comfortable with the possibility of being present when the patient passes away.

If you think you may be interested in this special opportunity, let us know!
