Heartland Hospice is looking for volunteers to provide in-person friendly visits with our hospice patients and their families. Heartland Hospice serves patients in their homes in a 50 mile radius of our Raleigh Office. Volunteers must be willing to drive to communities other than their own for these patient visits.

If you are interested in learning more about this rewarding and unique opportunity, please inquire. The first step is an in person interview. If selected, you will be invited to attend an orientation session where you will receive the training you need to prepare you for your visits.

Thank you for your interest in the Heartland Hospice Volunteer Program! We look forward to hearing from you!

Description

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.
