Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Heartland Hospice is a growing company dedicated to providing compassionate care to our patients with life limiting illnesses wherever they live. A strong component Heartland's team approach to hospice care is our volunteer program (mandated by Medicare) that offers human-to-human enrichment to the patient and the patient's family as well as lowering the cost to Medicare in providing the hospice benefit.
Hospice is a special kind of care designed to provide sensitivity and support for people in the final phase of a terminal illness. Hospice care seeks to enable patients to carry on an alert, pain-free life and to manage other symptoms so that the last days may be spent with dignity and quality at home or in a home-like setting. It is the goal of Heartland Hospice to provide palliative and supportive services to meet physical, psychological, social and spiritual needs to the patients and caregivers in the home, health care facilities, or other residential settings. These services will be provided without regard to race, religion, gender, creed, sex or ability to pay.
