Heartland Hospice Volunteers

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 include:

·       Helping with office support tasks at the agency

·       Running errands for patients and families

·       Staying with patients so family members can get out

·       Reading, or providing a comforting touch

·       Playing or singing soothing music to patients

·       Keeping vigil with patients in their final hours

These and other tasks are why hospice volunteers are such an essential part of the Heartland experience.

We provide volunteers with a detailed orientation to the hospice program so they fully understand our caring philosophy and goals, and have the skills needed to assist patients and their families.

As a volunteer, you’ll work with the Volunteer Coordinator to determine the best role for you to enrich the lives of others. You’ll hear the stories of patients and families firsthand.

How much of a commitment will you be asked to make? As a Heartland Hospice volunteer, you can donate as much or as little of your time as you desire. The duties of our volunteers are varied. This flexibility allows you to find an area or service that is uniquely suited to you and provides you with the greatest personal satisfaction.
