ORGANIZATION: Cardinal Hospice Care

  • 20 people are interested

Hospice volunteers provide patient care and support services through companionship. These services include reading to the client, watching movies, talking, and whatever special talents you may bring! We love matching volunteers to clients with similar interest. Do you play an instrument, sing, knit, or etc? Why not share your talents with members in hospice care who would enjoy your company. This position does require some travel and is not available for volunteers under the age of 18 unless accompanied by an adult.

About Cardinal Hospice Care

Location:

3884 Henderson Drive Ext., Jacksonville, NC 28546, US

Mission Statement

Cardinal 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).

Description

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.
