Cardinal Hospice Care
We are looking for caring individuals to provide companionship/socialization to our terminally ill patients or respite for their caregivers. Many patients like being read to: some enjoy being taken outside to enjoy the weather and view. A volunteer could also assist the social worker or grief counselor with mailings from time to time. Anyone who can sew, knit, crochet, or quilt could make lap blankets for patients or assist at our annual memory bear workshop (in Jacksonville).
***NOTE***DUE TO THE CURRENT CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC, VOLUNTEERS ARE NOT ALLOWED TO VISIT PATIENTS OR ENTER OUR OFFICES UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE FROM THE NC STATE DEPT. OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES. THEY CAN, HOWEVER, SEND CHEERFUL NOTES TO PATIENTS. WE ARE ALSO LOOKING FOR VOLUNTEERS WHO CAN MAKE LAP QUILTS OR SHAWLS FOR PATIENTS AS WE ARE APPROACHING COLDER WEATHER.

Continuum Hospice Care is committed to delivering a continuum of competent, dependable, compassionate, and valuable hospice services to eligible individuals in their home setting(private home or nursing facility).
We are a provider of hospice services only. Our hospice program of care includes a Medical Director, Nurses, Home Health Aides, Medical Social Worker, Chaplains, Physical, Occupational, and Speech Therapies, and Volunteers. Facilities are once again letting volunteers enter to make visits. Volunteers can also visits patients who reside in private homes as requested. Some patients have elected to continue receiving cheerful cards/notes, but for those who desire visits, the amount of time for a visit is up to you. We would appreciate a minimum of one hour a week - more is even better as we are required to match 5% of staff hours, but if you can only give 30 minutes, then that will suffice.
