Volunteers Needed in Atlantic, Cape May, and Cumberland Counties

NORTHFIELD – Heartland Hospice is searching for volunteers interested in committing their time to hospice patients and their families.
Volunteer training is flexible and is offered throughout the year to fit each person’s schedule. Additionally, interested volunteers will assist Heartland Hospice in determining which tasks are more suitable for them to perform.
Atlantic, Cape May, and Cumberland county volunteers will be placed close to their homes in order to support families with a variety of tasks. These tasks include helping with office support tasks at the agency; staying with patients so family members can get rest; reading, or providing a comforting touch; playing or singing soothing music to patients; keeping watch over patients in their final hours; providing a friendly visit to lift a patient's spirits; and providing special veteran volunteer support to patients who are veterans. Certified Pet Visitors are also needed to support these families.
For more information or to register for the next training session, contact the volunteer coordinator at 609.641.4675.
