Become a Friendly Visitor Volunteer for Hospice Patients - Lake County, IL
Heartland Hospice "Friendly Visitors" help to enhance the quality of our patients' lives by bringing the gift of caring companionship to our patients and providing support to their family. They are there for the patient offering to read, play music, tallking with the patient or simply being there to provide socialization.
During this time of COVID restrictions where volunteers are not allowed yet into skilled nursing facilities, we are still moving forward with interviewing and providing orientation training with the right candidates so they are ready to move forward when the time is right. If you would like to learn more about this opportunity, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
