Veterans

Every day, Heartland Hospice Service has the distinct honor of caring for hundred of Veterans, many of who dedicated their lives to caring for others. That is why Heartland has developed the Vets-to-Vets program, in which volunteers with similar backgrounds can meet with and assist in the care of U.S. military veterans. No one understand the questions and concerns of a Veteran more than a fellow Veteran or active duty personnel. Someone who you share common language and code of conduct with. Help enrich the lives of our Veterans patients by:

  • Listening as they tell their life stories
  • Helping Educate and assist on how to access veteran benefits
  • Helping during pinning ceremonies and presenting recognition and certificates
  • Providing support to families and loved ones

Benefits of volunteering:
  • Flexible schedules - you are able to pick up your own schedule and volunteers as little or as often as you would like
  • Learn new skills
  • Meet new people
  • Make a difference
  • Rewarding- give more than it takes
  • Healthy for you- long term volunteers have longer lives, less disease and better overall health.
