As a Heartland Hospice volunteer, you can donate as much or as little of your time as you desire. We work with you to find a geographic area or service that is uniquely suited to you and provides you with the greatest personal satisfaction.

At Heartland, 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. We help patients in Livingston, Oakland, Wayne, and Washtenaw Counties in Michigan.
