Thank you for your interest in the Heartland Hospice Volunteer Program! At this time, we are accepting new volunteers who are willing to drive to in-home patient or facility patient visits in and outside of their community. We see patients in 10 different counties surrounding our Raleigh office.

We understand that your time as a volunteer is valuable and your willingness to support our patients and families is greatly appreciated. There is an orientation process that involves an in-person meeting/training in our office, followed by a TB test. This will take time to complete so it is important to us that we are up front with you regarding our expectations and the time commitment involved.

Thank you again for your interest and for taking the time to consider the information. If you are interested in committing to a volunteer assignment with Heartland Hospice and acknowledge our expectations and time commitment, we look forward to working with you!

Thank you!

Mission Statement

At Heartland Hospice we promise... - to care for the mind, body, and spirit in a way that is comforting and compassionate - to be the difference in our customer's day, working to make every connection a personal one and creating memorable moments that define their Heartland experience - to discover what is important to our customers, respect their choices, and customize our services specifically to meet their needs - to be leaders in care delivery, corporate responsibility, and community action

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.

You have not lived until you have done something for someone who can never repay you!
