About

At Heartland Hospice, we consider the chance to be involved in the lives of our patients and families both a sacred opportunity and a privilege. The love, respect and care our hospice volunteers provide is vitally important to our patients' overall well-being during challenging times.

Every day, our volunteers bring love and kindness to our patients on hospice. We are searching for some talented volunteers that can bring very basic landscaping/mowing/gardening skills to help our patients and their caregivers. Our vision is to visit our home-based patients and caregivers once a month to mow, clean, maintain their yard. If this sounds like something you'd be interested in, please express interest to this post, or give us a call.

Next steps are: interviewing with the Volunteer Coordinator, we will need to conduct three reference checks and background checks, you will receive a free Tuberculosis test, and a Heartland Hospice training with the Volunteer Coordinator. We hope to hold these special group projects in the Spring and Summer of 2018, so we can do all the training during the winter months. The location is in the Greater Richmond Area, and will not be held at 10800 Midlothian Turnpike, but rather at our home-based hospice patients homes in the Greater Richmond area.

If you have any questions or would like to get help our hospice patients email or call (804)288-0235 and ask for Erin Jenkins, Volunteer Coordinator.
