The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
At Heartland Hospice, we consider our involvement with each patient 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. Volunteers offer support, companionship and practical, compassionate help. Our volunteers have the opportunity to work directly with our patients, or, if preferred, can work behind the scenes on special projects in the office setting. Volunteers can help enrich the lives of our patients by:
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
Vet to Vet Program
Must be 18 to visit with patients and 16 to work in our office. Background check, urine analysis and 2 step tb testing required
Our patients are in their own homes, nursing homes, or personal care homes throughout San Antonio and New Braunfels.
