  • 5 people are interested

Volunteers are the heart of Heartland Hospice! We are looking for Veterans who live in DeKalb or a surrounding community to join our growing team of volunteers. We recognize that Veterans share a special bond. The goal of our We Honor Veterans Vet-to-Vet Volunteer Program is to match Veteran patients with a hospice trained Veteran volunteer who may have a similar background. Veteran Volunteers can provide friendly visits to Veteran patients and their families. Others may participate in our We Honor Veterans pinning ceremonies. As a volunteer, you help determine which tasks you are best suited to perform. Service hours are extremely flexible and scheduled according to your availability and location. If you've got a little extra time to give to a Veteran patient, call or email Heartland's Volunteer Coordinator, Sheri, today to learn more about our unique volunteer opportunity (815)397-3691 or Sheri.Anspaugh@hcr-manorcare.com. We're waiting to hear from you! Veteran Volunteer requirements: must be at least 18 years old; agree to a background/reference check; have reliable transportation; and attend an orientation where you will learn about the philosophy of hospice care and our company, how to effectively communicate with your patients and their families, and the volunteer role.

Mission Statement

Our Mission is to improve your health and well-being.

Description

ProMedica Hospice 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:

  • Helping with office support tasks at the agency
  • 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

These and other tasks are why hospice volunteers are such an essential part of the Heartland experience.
