We have multiple locations to volunteer all across the state of North Carolina. Come and be an essential part of the interdisciplinary team that offers comfort care to our hospice patients. We have in person and "virtual" volunteer opportunities available for anyone 16 years or older. In Person volunteers have face to face companionships; you can talk, listen, read and play games with our patients. "Virtual" volunteers have the opportunity to volunteer from home and write cards or become a pen pal with patients all across the state. All volunteers have the opportunities to assist in planning events, activities and administrative work.

Come and spend time with our patients and listen to their life stories, share interests, or just be a silent presence in the room. Volunteering for us can take up as little as few minutes of your day to write a card or spend a few hours visiting patients!

PLEASE READ OUR REQUIREMENTS FOR VOLUNTEERING. A "VIRTUAL VOLUNTEER" HAS LESS REQUIREMENTS COMPARED TO AN IN-PERSON VOLUNTEER.

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.
