Heartland Hospice

  • 7 people are interested
Volunteers Are The Heart of Hospice

Are you bilingual? Have a passion for helping people? Heartland Hospice is seeking bilingual (any language) to visit our patients. Some of our patients do not have family and would love a visit from a volunteer.

Heartland Hospice serving Santa Clara, Alameda, San Mateo and San Francisco Counties.
We believe our mission is to enrich lives. That begins with every life we encounter: Our employees, our patients, and those who love and care for them, the communities in which we operate, our stakeholders and those who are yet to become our customers.

What is hospice care?

Hospice is designed to provide comfort care as well as spiritual and emotional support to people in the final phase of a terminal illness. Hospice stresses human values that go beyond the physical needs, so that each client can spend their final days in dignity and comfort.

What will you do?

You will become an important part of a support team of volunteers and professionals assuring that your fellow volunteers are recognized for their efforts and kept up to date on their client's needs.

  • Provide relief for family caregivers
  • Read to patient
  • Play cards or games
  • Play instrumental music
  • Pray with patient
  • Provide companionship

Benefits to volunteering:

  • Flexible schedules - You are able to pick your own schedule and volunteer for as little or as often as you would like
  • Learn new skills
  • Meet new people
  • Make a difference
  • Rewarding - Gives more than it takes
  • Healthy for you - Long-term volunteers have longer lives, less disease and better overall health
  • Have fun!

Mission Statement

We believe our mission is to enrich lives. That begins with every life we encounter: Our employees, our patients, and those who love and care for them, the communities in which we operate, our stakeholders and those who are yet to become our customers.

Description

Heartland Hospice is a 501(3)(c) organization made up of a dedicated team of Nurses, Home Health Aides, Spiritual Coordinators, Social Workers, Bereavement support, Medical Directors, office staff, and volunteers that desire to give a full circle of care to patients with advanced stage illnesses.

Volunteers are the most important component in helping the staff give a full circle of care to our clients. They can visit clients in their home or facility, give caregiver relief, make crafts and gifts items for the clients, office support, and much more...

Without volunteers our clients would lack in receiving the love and care they need during their most difficult journey.
