Harbor Hospice Fort Worth

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 1 person is interested

We are currently looking for volunteers in the Dallas and Fort Worth areas to make phone calls, assist at the office, and possibly visit with patients and families. Volunteers are the heart of any hospice company. Do you care about people? Do you like to help when someone needs time on their own for a little while? Do you like to talk to people, play music, or do crafts? You are who we are looking for. Covid-19 brought some hardships on many, has taken families away from their loved ones, and has made it to where caregivers don't get a break. Our volunteers help people like this. Whether it be an hour so the caregiver can go to the store, or someone needing to go to the doctor, volunteers are there to keep the patient safe while their loved one is out or to give companionship or just an extra ear. Our patients enjoy someone reading to them, singing to them, or even just talking to them about their life. Some of them love to do crafts or just watch tv. Our patients would love to have you volunteer. Come and touch someone's heart. You never know who will need your footprint in their life. They may even leave a footprint on your heart.
