At Lower Cape Fear LifeCare, we understand our patients and families sometimes need extra support. That’s why we’ve created the Moments Matter volunteer program. Here are some of the many ways you can help:
- Companionship: Visit patients to provide social and emotional support, share stories and laughs
- Respite: Sit with patients to ensure their safety and provide peace of mind so family and caregivers can run errands, do chores, take a nap, etc.
- Errands: Help patients and families with errands
