Our Veterans have served our country well. Now is the time to volunteer to be a friendly visitor to a veteran who is facing their final tour of duty. No hands-on care required. Just someone to be a friendly support who understands and has served our country. A veteran receiving hospice care may live in their own home, assisted living center, nursing home or reside with a family member. These visits are extremely flexible. Full training provided. Help make a difference to a Veteran. Listen to their story. Share the camaraderie. Go and change YOUR world. Thank you.

The mission of Heartland Hospice is to provide quality hospice care to patients with a limited life expectancy, as well as support to their caregivers. The quality of life for those we serve is enhanced through palliative and specialized supportive care designed to meet the physical, phychosocial and spiritual needs of the patients and caregivers. Hospice care is provided by an interdisciplinary team utilizing an approach to the care delivered to patients either in their own home or extended care facility; working cooperatively with area health care providers and other community resources. Heartland Hospice strives to provide care to all who are eligible and need hospice care irrespective of ability to pay.
Just everyday heroes needed to make a difference in the lives of others. There are so many different ways to make a difference.
Studies have shown that hospice patients who receive volunteer services on average live 2 months longer than those who do not. A small amount of time on your part can give so much more to our patients.
