Volunteers Are The Heart of Hospice

Please note in order to apply for this opportunity you must have your own pet that has been certified by Pet Partners or Therapy Dogs International.

Pet therapy has been proven to increase pain tolerance, reduce stress and lower blood pressure. Heartland Hospice is seeking compassionate individuals to visit our hospice patients. Interacting with a friendly animal brings lots of joys and smiles to our patients.

Benefits to volunteering:

  • Flexible schedules - You are able to pick your own schedule and volunteer for as little or as often as you would like
  • Learn new skills
  • Meet new people
  • Make a difference
  • Rewarding - Gives more than it takes
  • Healthy for you - Long-term volunteers have longer lives, less disease and better overall health


We believe our mission is to enrich lives. That begins with every life we encounter: Our employees, our patients, and those who love and care for them, the communities in which we operate, our stakeholders and those who are yet to become our customers.

Mission Statement

We believe our mission is to enrich lives. That begins with every life we encounter: Our employees, our patients, and those who love and care for them, the communities in which we operate, our stakeholders and those who are yet to become our customers.

Description

Heartland Hospice is a 501(3)(c) organization made up of a dedicated team of Nurses, Home Health Aides, Spiritual Coordinators, Social Workers, Bereavement support, Medical Directors, office staff, and volunteers that desire to give a full circle of care to patients with advanced stage illnesses.

Volunteers are the most important component in helping the staff give a full circle of care to our clients. They can visit clients in their home or facility, give caregiver relief, make crafts and gifts items for the clients, office support, and much more...

Without volunteers our clients would lack in receiving the love and care they need during their most difficult journey.
