Heart to Heart Hospice

Volunteers are a vital and valuable part of our patients' care teams!

We welcome caring volunteers who can visit our hospice patients to spend time with them and brighten their day. We provide volunteer services in San Marcos, Lockhart, Luling, Seguin, Kyle, Buda, Gonzales, and New Braunfels.

1-2 visits a month (or more) makes all the difference! Read to them, reminisce, play a game, play music, play an instrument, sit with the patient, or help them with a scheduled activity like bingo. Some of our patients live in a nursing/rehab facility and some live in their home or a family member's home.

We provide volunteer training and ongoing support (and appreciation!) to ensure our volunteers feel comfortable and equipped to provide this important service that makes such a big difference in someone's end of life experience. We can even bring the training to you if you live outside of San Marcos. Please call or email if you are interested in helping us give compassionate care for our patients and their families.

Additional or alternate volunteer option: Administrative Work: Answering phones, filing, assist recruiting and special projects.

*All volunteers must have their COVID Vaccinations*

About Heart to Heart Hospice in San Marcos

Location:

1340 Wonder World Drive, Suite 4202, San Marcos, TX 78666, US

Mission Statement

At Heart to Heart Hospice we understand the emotional and physical challenges that are associated with a life-limiting illness for both the patient and their loved ones. Our care team, made up of medical professionals, is here to provide patients with what they need the most: freedom from pain, emotional and spiritual support, and the ability to control the direction of their own care. We believe in a plan for living that will preserve our patient’s dignity and enable them to spend their remaining days, weeks, or months with their loved ones in a compassionate and pain-free environment.

Description

Heart to Heart Hospice has a variety of volunteers that possess different skills and talents needed to assist both patients and their loved ones, while providing support to our interdisciplinary team. The scope of work will be determined by the hospice program and the services that each program offers to patients and family members. Tasks may include providing hands-on care to patients with life-limiting illnesses and their loved ones, handling administrative work in the office, driving patients to appointments, helping teach bereavement support classes, or providing professional services.
