Are you compassionate and supportive? If so, join our Volunteer Team as a Vigil Volunteer!

Hospice Vigil Volunteers give support to patients and family members while a patient is actively dying.

Often families need a break from being at bedside for hours at a time. A vigil volunteer ensures that the patient is not alone, allows for families to take a break and facilitates a relaxing environment for the patient.

If you would like to be a calm presence for our patients in need of bedside support during their final days, contact us today to get started with training.

Mission Statement

Our Mission is to improve your health and well-being.

Description

Heartland Hospice 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.
