Description

At Heartland, we consider our involvement with patients a sacred opportunity and a privilege to be in their lives. We depend on our hospice volunteers to help us provide the love, respect and care our patients and their families need.

Our volunteers help enrich the lives of our patients by: •Running errands for patients and families
•Staying with patients so family members can get a much-needed rest
•Reading or providing a comforting touch
•Playing or singing soothing music to patients
•Keeping vigil with patients in their final hours
•Helping with office support tasks at the agency
•Providing a friendly visit to lift a patient's spirits
•Providing special veteran volunteer support to patients who are veterans

Requirements
