Patient/family volunteers play an important role in the hospice team in a variety of capacities. These volunteers visit with patients and families in their home setting providing companionship, respite and listening ear or a helping hand. Activities may include supportive phone calls and visits, providing respite for the caregiver, running errands, providing transportation, delivering meals or doing simple chores.
Our greatest need is for volunteers who will visit with patients and their families, as well as transportation/courier volunteers with availability on Fridays. We are also currently training volunteers for our two inpatient units, Hospice Home at High Point and the Randolph Hospice House in Asheboro.
As we continue to expand our volunteer services, we do so with an abundance of caution and with protocols in place to protect our volunteers and those they serve. *Please note: As a healthcare organization, volunteers are required to be vaccinated against COVID-19. In addition, a surgical mask is required for all in-person sessions.
