Ever thought about volunteering? Heartland Hospice is looking for volunteers to visit patients once a week. The schedule is very flexible. We provide a background check, TB testing, fingerprinting and training. Visiting with a patient has so many benefits. Not only is the patient excited to visit with you the volunteer can gain a lot of knowledge from their stories, learn empathy and compassion. There is nothing better than knowing you made a difference in someones life. And don't let the word Hospice scare you. There are many myths on Hospice and now patients can receive comfort care from hospice for a long time not just in the last few days of life.
If this sounds like something you would like to be a part of please contact me and we can talk more about the opportunities and what a value a volunteer is here at Heartland.

Hospice is a special kind of care designed to provide sensitivity and support for people in the final phase of a terminal illness. Hospice care seeks to enable patients to carry on an alert, pain-free life and to manage other symptoms so that the last days may be spent with dignity and quality at home or in a home-like setting. It is the goal of Heartland Hospice to provide palliative and supportive services to meet physical, psychological, social and spiritual needs to the patients and caregivers in the home, health care facilities, or other residential settings. These services will be provided without regard to race, religion, gender, creed, sex or ability to pay.
