About

If you are looking to have a positive impact and fruitfull experience interacting with others, Heartland Hospice could be a place for you.

We provide comfort care to those who are nearing the end of their lives. Sometimes this comfort care involves friendly visitors to interact with our patients in a variety of manners to give a patient a sense of hope, encouragement, and contentment.

As a friendly visitor volunteer, you may have the opportunity to provide companionship for these patients through reading to them, accompanying them to various games and activities within their community, doing arts and crafts, providing music, or simply sitting and visiting with them. It's a chance to be creative for the good of others.
