Friendly Visitor/Volunteer Companion-Hospice
Heartland Hospice - Newark
Volunteers are the heart of the Hospice Team. We depend on our volunteers to help us provide the extra love and care our clients and their families need during this time in their life. Volunteers offer support, companionship and practical help to this special group of individuals. Whether it's running errands, staying with a patient so family members can take a break, reading to patients, or holding their hand. The help and support that our volunteers give is returned to them in countless ways.
In Heartland hospice we work our teams focus on enhancing the quality of life rather than the length of life.
Be that special someone!
Training and volunteer hours are flexible

Sincerus Care Philosophy: Living. It's an attitude as mus as an action. A perception that helps sustain the highest quality of life, even under challenging circumstances. Emphasizing the positive aspects of body, mind, and spirit--as individuals, and as a connected community. Sincerus is a Latin word that means "true" or loyal", a fitting description of an approach to getting the most out of life each day. It's about living.
