Heartland Hospice

Volunteer Hands

Heartland Hospice is looking for caring and compassionate members of the community with an interest in volunteering to serve terminally ill patients and their families. Volunteers are truly remarkable individuals, who unselfishly give their time, talent and energy to help others. We depend on our Volunteers to help us provide the extra attention that our patients and their families need during the last stages of the patient's life. Our Volunteers provide friendly support and companionship, they play a vital role in our organization and they are rewarded with kind of gratification that comes from helping others.

We provide our volunteers with detailed training and orientation to the hospice program so they fully understand our philosophy and goals, and prepare for skills necessary to assist patients and their families.

As a Heartland Volunteer, you can donate as much or as little of your time as you desire. The duties of our volunteers are varied. This flexibility allows you to find an area or service that is uniquely suited to you and provide you with the greatest personal satisfaction.
