Helping hands
The last great thing to happen to someone is a hospice volunteer.

Novant Health Hospice is looking for volunteers who can make a difference in the lives of our patients' caregivers!

The Caring Connections team makes weekly calls to their assigned caregivers to check-in and see how they are doing for the first 100 days that their loved one is in our care. We have found this extra layer of support has dramatically increased the caregiver's confidence in their role, and ensures that they have all the supplies and support they need throughout the week.

This role can be completed in the comfort of your own home, so if you are not able to dedicate the time to a facility each week, this is the perfect opportunity for you!


**UPDATE 3/27/20**
During this unpredictable time, we are also utilizing this service to screen patients over the phone for COVID-19 related symptoms to better protect our team members and patients.

Mission Statement

We the employees and physician partners will deliver the most remarkable patient experience in every dimension, every time.

Description

Providing care for a loved one who is sick and can no longer look after themselves can be one of the biggest challenges a family has to face. These conditions can arise from old age, severe illness or crippling injuries, but regardless of the cause, we believe that no family should have to face these challenges alone.

Our hospice services provide a wide range of services and care-giving that can help patients and their loved ones when it is needed the most. Comfort, compassion and dignity are at the forefront of the care we provide.

Our hospice care specialists provide care for terminally ill patients and their families. We know how sensitive these times may be, and our goal is to provide patients and their families with effective healthcare that will improve the quality of a patient’s last days.

We provide an individualized treatment plan to comfortably manage pain and physical symptoms of each need a patient may have. Our team is made of doctors, nurses, medical social workers, chaplains, grief counselors, and volunteers that work together to help patients live life as comfortably and fulfilled as possible.
