Be a Hospice HERO! Make a difference to someone!
Adult volunteers only, please.

Must have reliable transportation.

Volunteers help enrich the lives of our patients by being:

Administrative Volunteers: Provide office support.

Patient Volunteers (currently the greatest need) help in the following ways:

Patient Volunteers DO NOT provide clinical care.

  • Provide companionship to patients through a friendly visit. Read, play soothing music, work puzzles, color at bedside, or have a warm conversation. This could mean more than you know.
  • Provide brief periods of respite to caregivers.
  • Run errands for patients and families.

Veteran patient volunteers needed!

VET to VET connections can be extremely important, especially at the end of a patient’s life. Veteran patients benefit greatly from having a veteran volunteer!

Students: Other opportunities are available for students. (For example, make artwork or cards.)

Training: Heartland Hospice will train all volunteers prior to working in the office or visiting patients. Background screen and drug screen (provided by company) required prior to on-boarding.

To volunteer, contact Amy Flora, Volunteer Coordinator, 843-444-0813 or amy.flora@promedica.org
