Hospice Volunteer Services

At Heart 'n Home we LOVE our Volunteers! We utilize and value our specially trained, caring Volunteers that are capable of assisting the people we serve. We would be unable to meet all of the needs of our patients, families, and community without the skillful hearts and hands of our Volunteers.

With a team of over 300 active hospice Volunteers, Heart 'n Home's patient and families are sure to be well taken care of. In 2013, Heart 'n Home Volunteers drove over 100,000 miles and donated over 11,000 hours to our patients and their families.

Contact us today at 1-800-HOSPICE (800-467-7423) for information on upcoming trainings or with questions about volunteer opportunities. We appreciate our Volunteers and look forward to sharing this experience with you!
