Volunteers are the HEART of Heartland Hospice! We are looking for special individuals who live in Rochester and surrounding communities, to join our growing team of superstar volunteers!
Our volunteer program is dedicated to providing quality care to our patients and families. This includes special programs, and helpful tools to provide comfort to those under Heartland’s care. Below is a list of -volunteer opportunities. Days & times are very flexible and we work with the each volunteer's schedule.
Volunteers usually commit to a minimum of 6 months of volunteering with 2 hours per month minimum. Please give me a call to set up an interview. We require all of our volunteers to complete an interview, fill out an application, provide us with three references, pass a criminal background check, TB test, and complete our volunteer training. You may reach me at 507-292-1170 I look forward to hearing from you soon.
The role of the vigil volunteer is to be with patients, in their last hours of living, who would otherwise be alone. While they do not assist with direct patient care or transport family members, vigil volunteers provide support to the family at the patient’s bedside.
Volunteers will receive:
- TB testing
- Ongoing educational opportunities
