Defiance area Hospice volunteers needed

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Heartland Hospice

  • 19 people are interested

I am looking for volunteers that live near Laurels of Defiance nursing home to visit with our hospice clients. Maybe you drive by this facility weekly, or you live near this facility. Would you consider stopping by once or twice a month?
Our hospice clients look forward to someone sitting with them for an hour, or whatever time you could spare.
it would be so nice to have a volunteer that would read to them, listen to their life story, or just sit with them and hold their hand. We have clients that cannot read any longer, but still like to have someone read the paper or books to them. Some of our clients like to have someone walk along with them in the halls.
There are so many things that a volunteer can offer, so please reach out to me.

Mission Statement

The mission of Heartland Hospice is to provide quality hospice care to patients with a limited life expectancy, as well as provide support to their caregivers. The quality of life for those we serve is enhanced through palliative and specialized supportive care designed to meet the physical, psychosocial and spiritual needs of the patients and caregivers. It is our policy to admit and treat all persons without regards to race, color, national origin, handicap, age, sex, marital status, religion, contagious disease or sexual preference.

Description

Hospice care is a promise...a promise to patients who are facing the most difficult time of life, when choices seem few, and the patient and family situation is most fragile.

Heartland Hospice's program utilizes a team approach to meet the physical, social and spiritual needs of our patients and their families. This team includes the medical director, attending physician, nurses, certified nursing assistants, social workers, home health aides, spiritual counselor, bereavement counselors and volunteers.

We depend on our volunteers to help us provide the extra love and care our clients and their families need at this time in their life.
