Heartland Hospice offers a very special Legacy program which allows patients to record their life story and messages for family and loved ones. We are looking for committed, compassionate, tech-savvy volunteers who can help with these requests! When Heartland Hospice gets a request for a Legacy video, we would contact our media volunteer to schedule a day and time to meet together with the patient. This could take place either in a home or facility setting, such as a nursing home or an assisted-living. During this time, the patient will share their life story and/or messages they would like to leave for their loved ones. We would like the media volunteer to film the patient, using their own technology, such as an iPhone (with a stand) or a video camera. (Providing a microphone would also be a bonus!)
After the initial meeting, the media volunteer would work independently, with a sense of urgency, to edit the video footage per the patient’s request, such as adding family information, music, photos, additional slides, etc. We will then go through an approval process until all requested components have been met. Once the draft has been approved, copies will be made of the video and provided to the patient and their family.
This is an extremely rewarding volunteer opportunity and some schedule flexibility is required. If you can help us, contact us today!
