  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 19 people are interested

ProMedica Heartland Hospice of Northwest Indiana is always looking for creative ways to keep our patients safe and comfortable. If you are a creative with your sewing and looking for a way to make an impact from your own home, this opportunity is for you. Fidget, or busy, blankets are blankets that we provide to our patients who need to be doing something with their hands. Many times those with dementia or Alzheimers "fidget" with their hands and these blankets provide the tools for them to play with safely. We will take one or as many as you are willing to donate and our patients and their families appreciate all you can do. The cost of the materials and shipping is the responsibility of the volunteer, which ProMedica Heartland Hospice appreciates.

Description

ProMedica Heartland Hospice provides care to patients wherever they call home: in the house they've lived in for years, a skilled nursing center, an assisted living facility or independent living facility.
Every patient is different, with different challenges, different needs, different family and friends. So the care we give each patient is different.

ProMedica Heartland volunteers offer support, companionship and practical, compassionate help. Some interact directly with patients and families. Others prefer to work behind the scenes in the office setting. As a volunteer, you help determine which tasks you’re best suited to perform. The tasks of volunteers include:

  • Helping with office support tasks at the agency
  • Running errands for patients and families
  • Staying with patients so family members can get a much-needed rest
  • Reading, or providing a comforting touch
  • Playing or singing soothing music to patients
  • Keeping vigil with patients in their final hours

These and other tasks are why hospice volunteers are such an essential part of the Heartland experience.
