Our hospice patients need you!

Many patients under hospice care live with Alzheimer's Disease or other kinds of dementia. A simple fidget blanket craft can provide them comfort and ease anxiety by giving their hands a way to keep busy with familiar tasks. We will provide you with all the patterns and training you need.

After a patient passes away, a Memory Bear can bring comfort to their family. The family gives us a piece of clothing or fabric that reminds them of their loved one. We sew it into a teddy bear with a special poem. It's a keepsake for our families to remember the loved one they lost.

If you're looking for a way to put your skills to good use, contact us!

Mission Statement

Volunteers. The Heart of the Hospice Team.


Heartland Hospice provides care wherever you call home: in your house, a skilled nursing center, an assisted living facility or independent living facility. Our caregivers help create individualized care plans, set personal goals, and manage pain and symptoms. Every patient is different. With different challenges, different needs, different family and friends. So the care we give each patient is different. We treat the patient and family as a whole, providing services for body, mind, and spirit.
