Heart-to-Heart Volunteer Program

The goal of Doylestown Health's Heart-to-Heart volunteer program is to provide a positive transition to healing and wellness for heart patients and their family members through reassurance, compassion and inspiration. Heart-to-Heart volunteers have all had some past involvement with a cardiac event, and most are former heart patients. Their mission is to help others like themselves.

What Do Heart-to-Heart Volunteers Do?

Our Heart-to-Heart volunteers touch the lives of many heart patients and assist them through what can be a difficult and emotional time. They offer individual, non-medical support based on their personal experiences with cardiac diagnoses and past events. Many volunteers say that they feel this is an opportunity to give others the support they were given, and to express their gratitude.

Heart-to-Heart Volunteer Training

All Heart-to-Heart volunteers must complete hospital orientation and a specialized training program given by The Heart Institute. They also attend various workshops through the year that assist them in helping others. Because patients and their family members may feel overwhelmed after surgery, this service provides much needed support during a very stressful time.
