Volunteers

Volunteer

Volunteers are essential to the Hospice program. The volunteers perform a variety of duties and must complete a training program designed to prepare them for involvement with the Hospice patients and their families; visits, errands, etc. Volunteers can also help with clerical duties at the Hospice office, as well as plan and participate in fundraising activities.

Are you a warm, caring individual with a couple hours to spare? Hospice of the Hills is looking for individuals to join our team of volunteers. Your time may be spent reading to a patient, reminiscing, playing music, clerical etc. This is an opportunity to make a significant difference in someone’s life.

Memory Bear Program

Individuals experiencing grief need the resources and support to help them during difficult times.  Memory Bears are one way to bring comfort and peace to families. Volunteers receive special training to craft the bears from garments once worn by the patient, such as a favorite shirt, sweater or dress, which are then transformed into memory teddy bears by experienced volunteer sewers. Memory Bears are loving and healing- the garment and the urge to hug the bear have brought incredible support. 

 

Bereavement Support Group

Each one of us mourns the loss of a loved one differently. While some attempt to cope with their grief individually, and do not want or need outside assistance, many others seek and find comfort in sharing their pain, anger, depression and other emotions they feel following a loss.  The NARMC/ Hospice of the Hills Bereavement Support Group meets every Tuesday from 10:00 a.m. until 11:30 a.m. at St. John's Episcopal Church Conference Room at 707 W. Central, Harrison, AR. This support group is free to attend.

Donate

Hospice of the Hills is strictly a non-profit organization that relies on community support to offset those costs not covered by Medicare and private insurance. We seek to offer support and care for the patient and their loved ones. No patient is ever turned away because of the inability to pay for services.

 

Donations can also be used for:

  • Travel expenses for loved ones
  • Upkeep on the Hospice House
  • The Hospice House serenity garden
  • Medications
  • Other expenses that can alleviate the burden of an already difficult time

Donations to Hospice of the Hills can also be given for a specific purpose.

“TWENTY IS PLENTY”
Our largest fund raising campaign “Twenty IS Plenty” is designed to signify that with broad community support, a relatively small contribution by enough people can help provide this area with a first class facility and a much needed service. Hopefully, by the grace of God, you or your loved ones will never need to utilize the services of the Hospice House, but with your support, the facility will be there for those who do.

The Hospice House incurred a sizable debt in order to complete our expansion to eight patient rooms and two family bedrooms and in addition we have little in the way of reserves to assist the non-insured patients who need this care as much if not more than those covered by Medicare and private insurance. Your donations regardless of how small will enable the Hospice of the Hills to continue to serve a vital role.
