About

Volunteer Training will be held on: May 16th, 17th, & 18th 4pm-8pm You will need to attend all 3 of the classes to complete training requirements. The location will be at our McKinnon Hospice Center 5003 Hospice Lane in Kannapolis.

Attending this training will open up volunteer opportunities to work directly with patients in areas such as:

Direct Care Volunteers:
As a direct volunteer, you’ll spend a lot of time sitting and talking with patients. You may help out with household duties, write letters, make phone calls, groom hair, play soothing music, do laundry, among other things. Direct care volunteers serve at Tucker Hospice House, in nursing care facilities and in homes of patients.

Interlude Music Volunteers:
Music volunteers have additional training to prepare them for playing soothing, comforting music for patients at Tucker Hospice House, in nursing care facilities and in patients’ homes.

Comforting Paws Volunteers:
Comforting Paws, our pet visitation program, provides people with companionship, love and something to look forward to in their day. Patients become more sociable and experience less loneliness and depression when animals are present.
