Harbor Hospice of Plano | Volunteers Wanted

Harbor Hospice is seeking volunteers in many different capacities. We are seeking volunteers that could make fidget blankets for our hospice patients with Alzheimer's or other forms of dementia. There are many benefits of fidget blankets for patients, including keeping them calm during periods of anxiety or restlessness. A fidget blanket is a lap-size quilt that provides sensory stimulation for patients that are in need of a way to alleviate agitation and provide a sense of calmness.

We have multiple opportunities to lend a helping hand here at Harbor Hospice. From singing or playing music to patients to reading books or drawing, we would love to have you join our team!

Volunteers are literally, the heart of Harbor Hospice, providing a special kind of caring and compassion for our patients and their families. Every day, our volunteers make a difference in the lives of so many people. Whether they offer a listening ear to patients and families, assist with daily household activities for patients, provide grief support, serve as a companion to loved ones or share their personal expertise to help promote hospice care, the time given to Harbor Hospice families by our volunteers can be the most rewarding experiences of their lives. As a volunteer for Harbor Hospice's Patient Care Services, you "do good" every day. It takes a very special, caring person to give of themselves as unselfishly as our Harbor Hospice patient care volunteers. If you'd like to be a part of the Harbor Hospice team, here are some examples of the activities you can assist with:

  • reading to a patient, or holding a hand
  • staying with a patient while family members take a needed break or keep an appointment
  • shopping or doing errands for a patient
  • listening
  • helping patients write or tell their life stories
  • light household chores
  • providing help with makeup and hair
  • Veterans needed to honor Veteran patients at bedside/share stories together
  • working on crafts or other projects
  • clerical and other office duties
