Become a part of the memories that have changed the lives of patients and their families.

Volunteers are essential members of our dedicated team. We are committed to providing care to our patients so that they may be pain free & die with hope and dignity.

Individuals of all types are needed to create the unique bond that occurs between the volunteer and the patient. As a volunteer you will love the sense of self-satisfaction you will receive from bringing special pleasure to someone's life. And you will enjoy learning from the vast experiences and colorful lives of our patients and their families.

We serve patients in a variety of settings in the Greater Pittsburgh Area. Visits can be made at your convenience, close to home, and at your location of interest- such as a nursing home, a private home. You must have your own transportation, however where and when you travel solely at your discretion.

Mission Statement

Heartland Home Health Care & Hospice is a growing company dedicated to providing compassionate high quality home health care. We will achieve this by recruiting professional, caring staff, encouraging patients to become active participants in care, and by creating an atmosphere of supportive leadership. We value strong, mutually beneficial relationships with referral sources, employees, patients and caregiver and community at large.

Description

Hospice is a special kind of care designed to provide sensitivity and support for people in the final phase of terminal illness. Hospice care seeks to enable patients to carry on an alert, pain-free life and to manage other symptoms so that the last days may be spent with dignity and quality at home or in a home-like setting. It is the goal of Heartland Hospice to provide palliative and supportive services to meet physical, psychological, social and spiritual needs to the patients and caregivers in the home, health care facilities, or other residential settings. These services will be provided without regard to race, religion, gender, creed, sex or ability to pay.
