Gypsi and Emilee, Heartland Hospice Volunteer Coordinators
Volunteers are the HEART of Heartland Hospice! We are looking for more special individuals who live in West Bend, or a surrounding community, to join our growing team of superstar volunteers! Friendly visitor volunteers enrich the lives of hospice patients through social visits, which may involve playing games, enjoying a leisurely stroll around the nursing home/assisted-living facility, engaging in lively conversation or simply providing a comforting presence. Service hours are extremely flexible and scheduled according to your availability and location. You have the power to bring the greatest gifts to our patients’ lives... a smile and reassurance that comes with knowing they are genuinely cared for!
If you've got a little extra time to give and have a big heart, contact us today! We're waiting to hear from you!
