We believe that our mission is to enrich lives by providing high quality services and products. That begins with every life we encounter: our employees, our patients and those who love and care for them, the communities in which we operate, our stakeholders and those who are yet to become our customers.
Heartland 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 MAY 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
Providing a friendly visit to lift a patient's spirits
Providing special veteran volunteer support to patients who are veterans
* We suggest volunteers wait a minimum of one year following the death of a loved one to volunteer. This allows adequate time to make appropriate adjustments after a significant personal loss.
