Volunteering is truly the gift that rewards the giver as much as the recipient.

Carefully chosen and carefully trained, our volunteers bring an open heart and an extra pair of hands while they donate their time, efforts, and talents to patients and their loved ones.

Volunteer opportunities are available in the areas of patient care, community service, and administration.

All volunteers are required to attend 12 hours of our general volunteer training sessions. These sessions are scheduled throughout the year.

It takes a special person to be a volunteer. Here are some of the qualities that make our volunteers so successful:

  • Flexibility: our volunteers are comfortable with a variety of people and situations
  • Non-judgmental attitude: our volunteers set aside their own attitudes and beliefs
  • Warmth and compassion: hospice volunteers are experts at holding hands
  • Willingness to help people: they also have energy and optimism
  • Ability to work with others: each volunteer is a vital part of the team
Hospice of Cabarrus County Volunteer Opportunities

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. You may also have the opportunity to help someone achieve a final wish.

Direct care volunteers serve at Tucker Hospice House, in nursing care facilities, and in homes of patients.

***Volunteers must have a COVID vaccine.****

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 patient's homes. Some instruments played by volunteers include harp, piano, mandolin, mandola, guitar, bowed psaltery, and flute.

Once you have completed your 12-hour general volunteer training, you will need to schedule an orientation, audition, and additional musical training with our Interlude music coordinator.

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. Our pet volunteers also help to provide stimulation and encourage conversation.
