Enriching the lives of our patients as a Veteran Volunteer is one of Heartland Hospice's primary missions. Veterans add significant experience and care to the volunteer services we provide, especially to those of our patients who have also served in the United States military. We need your help to fulfill the needs of our patients and families by offering any of the following services:
reading personal mail, literature, magazines/newspapers, etc.
music enrichment via playing an instrument or through an electronic device
translating languages--especially Spanish, French, German
pet therapy (pet must have proof of current shots and therapeutic certification for pets)
Our patients and volunteers find these visits to be some of the best moments of their lives. Please help us to continue this rewarding service.
To register or learn more information about our program, please call Heartland Hospice at #240 264-1692 and ask to speak with Volunteer Coordinator, Gordon Creamer. Office hours are 8:30 to 5:00 Monday through Friday.
