Heartland Hospice of Dayton is currently looking for volunteers who are able to share their time with our patients living at home, assisted living or long term care facilities. Hospice volunteers who give their time to terminally ill patients and their caregivers/families during a critical time are the backbone of our volunteer program.
As a friendly companion visit volunteer you are able to sit with a patient and offer active listening and emotional support for the patient and their loved ones.
One example of a friendly companion visit would be: a patient's caregivers/loved ones may need to run errands or have an appointment. Being able to provide volunteer services is vital to our program.
