Like to drive and be greeted with smiles? Help Homeland Hospice provide a unique and extra level of support to our patients and their families!

Deliver homemade frozen soups and casseroles, every two weeks, to patients and/or families in our service area. Many deliveries do not include direct contact; meals are left on porches or quickly handed off to family members. The volunteer would document interaction/visits with patients and families and returning the documentation within three days to the Volunteer Coordinator.

Volunteers are required to complete an orientation program which can be done as a self study in the volunteer's home at your own pace. Also required is a background check and 2-stepp PPD (TB) test. Any expenses will be covered by Homeland Hospice.

Time Commitment: Will vary, but approximately 4-6 hours per month. Volunteer can set own daytime/weekday hours that correspond with Homeland Hospice office hours (8:00 AM-5:00 PM), to pick up meals, and patient's/family's schedule.

Requirements:
  • Reliable transportation
  • Good driving record
  • Willing to be consistent (weather permitting) with delivery schedule
  • Occasional flexibility in delivering a meal ASAP due to family need

*Homeland Hospice's office is located in Harrisburg, but service is provided in 14 South Central PA counties, including: Adams, Cumberland, Dauphin, Lancaster, Lebanon, Northumberland, Perry, Schuylkill, York....
