Heartland Hospice

Volunteers are the heart of the hospice team. We depend on our volunteers to help us provide the extra love and care our clients and their families need at this time in their life. Volunteers offer support, companionship, and practical caring help to this special group of people. Whether it's running errands, staying with the patient so family members can take a break, reading to patients, holding a hand, making crafts, or even baking, the help and support our volunteers give is returned to them in countless ways.

Due to the recent spike in COVID-19 cases and resulting shelter in place order, seniors are at great risk of suffering from isolation and it's related health hazards. Heartland is working with our patients and their families to provide friendly volunteer visits either while maintaining social distance and PPE precautions, or remotely through phone calls, letters, and cards. Please help us in this effort!

~Most training can be done remotely

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.
