Description

Our Volunteers are the hearts of Heartland Hospice. No task is too big or too small. A skilled team of staff and volunteers cater to the control of medical, social, psychological, and spiritual symptoms of our patients and families living with a terminal illness. Volunteers bring comfort to patients and their families through their work in various areas such as friendly visitor, caregiver relief sitting, special projects, bereavement, pet therapy, cosmetology, vigil, and memory catchers. There are volunteer opportunities to comfort, attend to, share a laugh, reassure, do something creative, treasure a memory, or spend quite time at a patent's bedside - just being there so a patient never feels alone. Volunteer work is varied. As a Heartland Hospice volunteer you can donate as much or as little of your time as you desire, we are flexible to meet your scheduling needs. Volunteers come specifically to Heartland Hospice for different reasons. Most volunteers express a desire to "give back" for a kindness they experienced within their lives. Heartland is also looking to recruit volunteers to fill special project roles including weekly readers for reading groups and seasonal activity leaders for patients who live in local facilities.

You have not lived until you have done something for someone who can never repay you!

I have been volunteering with Heartland for a few years now and I love it. Their primary concern is for the patient care and the families. Our coordinator Amanda Clark is awesome and is responsible for a lot of the great works that are done in this office by volunteers. We have a great team of volunteers and I am glad to be a part of this team and organization. It is an extra blessing in my life. :) Lay C

The volunteer coordinator, Amanda Clark, is a dynamic, spirited and motivational key ingredient of Heartland Hospice. She displays genuine care and concern for all those in need. I hope to continue providing support for the hospice in the future.
