At Heartland, we consider our involvement with patients and families to be both a sacred opportunity and a privilege. We depend on our hospice volunteers to share their skills and interests in a way that enriches the quality of life for those we serve.
Heartland volunteers offer support, companionship and practical, compassionate help. Some interact directly with patients and families. Others prefer to work behind the scenes in the office setting. As a volunteer, you help determine which tasks you’re best suited to perform.
The tasks of volunteers include:
Running errands for patients and families
Staying with patients so family members can get a much-needed rest
Reading, or providing a comforting touch
Playing or singing soothing music to patients
Keeping vigil with patients in their final hours
Providing a friendly visit to lift a patient's spirits
Providing special veteran volunteer support to patients who are veterans
These and other tasks are why hospice volunteers are such an essential part of the Heartland Experience.
Our home patients need friends now more than ever!! Can you help out?
*All volunteers are required to wear medical grade masks (provided) and maintain distance as able!
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
