Friendly Visitor Companion for Hospice Patients
Enriching the lives of our patients and their loved ones is our primary goal at Heartland Hospice. To achieve this mission, we seek the compassionate assistance of volunteers and invite them to join us on the journey of a lifetime! Because they are the heart of our organization, we welcome volunteers with various skills/talents and availability to provide the following to our patients and families during regular visits: companionship and socialization, emotional & spiritual support, reading of materials (sacred scriptures, literature, magazines, mail), music enrichment, arts & crafts, grief support, relief sitting for caregivers, running errands and patient legacy projects.
These opportunities are available throughout Baltimore City/County and Howard & Anne Arundel Counties.
A Background Check, 2 References, Tuberculosis Testing (TB) and Opportunity-specific training are required for this role and are provided by our hospice agency.
