Helping Hands

TRAIN REMOTELY! If you have extra time on your hands and would like to give back to your community when life resumes to normal, contact me. I am setting up Zoom (live on-line) training to help get individuals through the training process now, so we have ample Volunteer staff ready when restrictions are lifted.

In need of Volunteers (particularly in Geneva & St. Charles area).

Are you a good listener? Are you looking to serve your community with purpose? Become a Heartland Volunteer! Our Volunteers are the heart of our hospice team. We depend on our hospice volunteers to help us provide the extra care our patients and their families need. Volunteers have a tremendous impact on the lives of the patients that they serve.

Volunteers offer support, companionship and compassionate help to our patients:

  • Volunteers provide a nurturing environment for patients and families.
  • Volunteers spend time with our patients sitting, talking, reading & listening to music.
  • Many patients are unable to get out and socialize as they used to. Our Volunteers bring the socialization to them and help to decrease feelings of isolation.

As a hospice volunteer, you will be oriented to the hospice program so you can understand our caring philosophy and goals. Volunteers have a critical contribution to the hospice experience. We work with your schedule & match you with patients in your community, so contact us today and let's make a difference together! Our screening process includes an application, background check and training.

HCR ManorCare is a leading provider of short-term post-acute and long-term care, and hospice and home care services. Our 60,000 employees provide quality care for patients and residents through a network of more than 500 skilled nursing and rehabilitation centers, assisted living facilities, outpatient rehabilitation clinics, and hospice and home health care agencies.

Description

Hospice isn't a place. It's a philosophy of care. Our mission is called enriching life.

Heartland Hospice is dedicated to providing patients with care wherever they consider home. Whether care is desired in the home a patient has lived in for years, a skilled nursing center or an assisted living facility, we tailor our caregiving to fit the patient's and family's unique needs.

Heartland's caregivers enrich our patients' lives and provide support by developing individualized care plans, setting goals, encouraging personal choices, working together in caregiving decisions and supporting meaningful experiences. Our caregivers help manage pain and symptoms, enabling patients to live life as fully and comfortably as possible. Social workers and spiritual counselors create a comforting environment in which patients and families are able to share their thoughts, hopes and concerns. And special bereavement programs provide emotional support to patients and families who need help coping.

Heartland Hospice supports the patient and family wherever they are in their health care journey, and upholds the patient's and family's wishes, goals and values. At Heartland, we help preserve our patients' dignity, show them the respect that they richly deserve and provide compassionate care through our Caring Promises.
