Dying with dignity is a human right. At Heartland Hospice we are dedicated to providing compassionate high quality hospice care. Our volunteers are highly valued and appreciated for the level of care and compassion they bring to our team. Whether working in the office, serenading a patient bedside, crocheting a lap blanket for cold winter nights, or just holding a frail hand, volunteers bring their own skills to the table. We are thankful for you.
Heartland Hospice provides care to people who have a life-limiting illness of 6 months or less. Services include a team approach to care provided by Registered Nurses, Physicians, Chaplains, Social Workers, Certified Nursing Assistants, Volunteers and Bereavement Counselors. Services are provided in Skilled Nursing facilities, assisted living facilities and private residences in the greater Philadelphia area.
Heartland Hospice is a wonderful organization helping people in difficult situations. Looking someone in the eye and treating them with dignity and love is an incredibly rewarding experience. It seems like elderly dementia patients are not visited as often as others but I believe that a kind touch and word still touches the soul and makes a difference.
Heartland has provided me with so many opportunities to serve a most diverse group of wonderful folks. The people I visit give to me tenfold anything I do for them. Heartland offers me the gift of connecting with very special people who will always live in my heart. I appreciate the support and encouragement of Lisa, the volunteer coordinator at Heartland. She is always available for my questions or concerns. If you want a powerful and amazing life experience, volunteer your time through Heartland.
