About

Mountain Valley Hospice and Palliative Care serves hospice patients in 17 counties in NW North Carolina and SW Virginia. We have eight office sites that include: Stuart, VA; Hillsville, VA; Martinsville, VA; Mount Airy, NC; Dobson, NC; Elkin, NC; Pilot Mountain, NC; and Yadkinville, NC; and are building a hospice home facility in Yadkin County.

We need men and women over the age of 18 to visit with our hospice patients to provide emotional support, companionship, errands, or respite breaks for weary caregivers. Volunteers do not provide any medically-related services and no medical training is necessary. You would be required to give at least two to four hours a month right in your own hometown community. Come join us and add life to someone's days by being that friendly support system they need as they make that final journey. Veterans for our Vet-to-Vet Program are especially needed.
