Hospice Patient Care Volunteer, South Bend/Mishawaka
Heart to Heart Hospice of Northern Indiana
Share your time and your heart. Our Patient Care volunteers brighten the day of our patients by visiting to play cards or games, watching TV, reading, taking walks, or simply sharing in a good conversation. Volunteers can also perform light housekeeping duties, bring in music, or write a "life review" for their family to cherish. Training schedule and volunteer hours are flexible. We will work around your schedule.

Providing compassion and caring, while striving to enhance the quality of life for those with life-limiting illnesses and their loved ones is our mission at Heart to Heart Hospice. Our Goal is to allow patients to rejoice in the lives of their loved ones and share positive memories of the legacy that they are leaving behind. At Heart to Heart Hospice we try to go beyond the expectations of our patients and their families to provide them with compassionate, personalized care and emotional and spiritual support. We believe in a plan for living that will enable patients to spend their remaining time pain-free and with dignity. We believe that all eligible patients, regardless of the complexity of their needs, should be able to receive the comprehensive care that they deserve. We strive to make a difference in the lives of others and treat each individual with respect and compassion, while improving the quality standards associated with end-of-life care.
