Veterans who are hospice patients in nursing homes throughout Michigan get lonely. Be the one who brightens their day. Volunteer through Heartland Hospice to make a difference!

Volunteers must be at least 18-years-old to visit patients. Heartland (formerly ProMedica) Hospice requires all volunteers to get the annual flu shot and provides it for free. Volunteers must be fully vaccinated against COVID. Volunteers must complete two TB skin tests (available for free in the Heartland Ann Arbor office), and a fingerprint background check (paid for by Heartland). We provide extensive training to ensure volunteers are fully prepared for their work. All visitation volunteers must complete an N95 mask fit test in the Heartland office in Ann Arbor.

About Heartland Hospice (formerly ProMedica)

Location:

1390 Eisenhower Place, Ann Arbor, MI 48108, US

Mission Statement

Heartland Hospice provides quality care to patients with a limited life expectancy, as well as support to their families and caregivers. Formerly known as ProMedica Hospice, Heartland enhances the quality of life of those we serve through palliative and specialized supportive care designed to meet the physical, psychosocial, and spiritual needs of the patients and caregivers. Hospice care is provided by using an interdisciplinary approach in delivering care to patients--either in their own homes or extended care facilities--while working cooperatively with other health care providers and other community resources. Heartland Hospice strives to provide care to all who are eligible and need hospice care irrespective of ability to pay. Heartland is part of Gentiva Health Services.

Description

Heartland Hospice serves patients in Washtenaw, Livingston, Wayne, Oakland, Lenawee, Jackson and Ingham Counties in Michigan.

Hospice supports, cares for and comforts patients in the final stages of life, as well helping as their families. Heartland serves patients wherever they call home, whether it is a private home or a nursing home or another facility. Hospice includes palliative care by nurses, as well as counseling for patient and family, and pastoral or spiritual support.

Hospice volunteers help patients and families by providing companionship, respite care and emotional or spiritual support, depending on the patient's needs.
