Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Heartland Home Health Care and Hospice is a growing company dedicated to providing compassionate, high-quality, home health care. We achieve this by recruiting professional, caring staff; encouraging our clients to become active participants in their care; and by creating an atmosphere of supportive leadership. We value strong, mutually beneficial relationships with our referral sources, employees, clients, and their familites and the community at large.
Hospice is a special kind of care designed to provide comfort care as well as spiritual and emotional support for people during a very critical and sacred part of their life journey. Hospice focuses on enhancing the quality of life, rather than length of life. It neither hastens nor postpones death; it affirms life and regards dying as a normal process. The hospice program stresses human values that go beyond the physical needs of the patient. Hospice ensures that patients spend their final days in dignity and comfort.
Heartland Hospice's program uses 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, spiritual counselors, bereavement counselors, and volunteers.
Our Hospice Volunteers are orientated to the Hospice Program so they can understand the philosophy and goals. This enables the volunteers to have the skills needed to assist patients and their families. Our volunteers love:
- the sense of satisfaction they get from being present and bringing comfort and pleasure to our patients and their families
- the vast experience and colorful life of our patients and their families
- learning new skills and expanding their knowledge and experience.
