  • 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 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

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