Heartland Hospice would love to have you as a volunteer to visit with our patients in your residential areas of Eastern Wake County - Western Nash County (Zebulon, Knightdale, Wendell, Spring Hope, Middlesex). If you are compassionate, reliable, and just want to make a difference in someones life, we need your help to provided friendly visits to individuals in your surrounding area. Friendly visits provide emotional support, companionship, comforting presence and sometimes caregiver respite. Our volunteers provide service in their own community so their time is spent with our patients, not driving. A Heartland volunteer's time commitment is based solely on what time the volunteer can give. This volunteer opportunity is rewarding and unique. We look forward to working with you on your hospice volunteer journey!

Our Volunteers are the hearts of Heartland Hospice. No task is too big or too small. A skilled team of staff and volunteers cater to the control of medical, social, psychological, and spiritual symptoms of our patients and families living with a terminal illness. Volunteers bring comfort to patients and their families through their work in various areas such as friendly visitor, caregiver relief sitting, special projects, bereavement, pet therapy, cosmetology, vigil, and memory catchers. There are volunteer opportunities to comfort, attend to, share a laugh, reassure, do something creative, treasure a memory, or spend quite time at a patent's bedside - just being there so a patient never feels alone. Volunteer work is varied. As a Heartland Hospice volunteer you can donate as much or as little of your time as you desire, we are flexible to meet your scheduling needs. Volunteers come specifically to Heartland Hospice for different reasons. Most volunteers express a desire to "give back" for a kindness they experienced within their lives. Heartland is also looking to recruit volunteers to fill special project roles including weekly readers for reading groups and seasonal activity leaders for patients who live in local facilities.
