Heartland Hospice seeks volunteers to visit hospice patients and help support their family members.

Volunteers are an important part of the hospice patient care team. Helping hospice patients and their family members can be very rewarding work. Volunteers help improve quality of life for patients by offering a friendly, listening ear and an emotionally supportive presence. Currently, volunteers must be vaccinated against Covid-19 and influenza and have weekly Covid tests in order to visit patients. (Medical and religious exemptions to the vaccine requirements may be requested.) Personal Protective Equipment ("PPE") is provided at no cost to you. During COVID-19 outbreaks, some of our work is done by telephone and through the mail.

Volunteer duties vary. We are always interested in your ideas about how we can best meet each individual patient’s needs and goals.

To qualify, volunteers must:
* pass a background check including fingerprinting (the fingerprinting requirement is temporarily waived during COVID-19);
* provide 3 personal references;
* complete 14 hours of training (including about 10 hours of homework); and
* have a double Mantoux test (injections to screen for tuberculosis) (the Mantoux test requirement is temporarily waived during COVID-19).

Foreign language skills are a plus. For more information or to request an application packet, please call Brenda at 651-638-8227.
