We have volunteer opportunities located 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 offer regular in person opportunities in which you will be talking, listening and interacting with our hospice patients. "Virtual" volunteers are able to send letters and become pen pals with our patients from the comfort of their home. All volunteers have the chance to assist with event, activity planning and administrative work when possible.

Come spend time with our patients and listen to their life stories, share interest and be a compassionate volunteer today!

All volunteers are required to pass a NC background check, show proof of COVID-19 vaccinations (Medical and Religious exemptions apply) and complete our online training course. There are no other requirements for "virtual" volunteers. For in person volunteers, you must also have an up-to-date TB Skin test, or otherwise known as a PPD skin test. We offer these free of charge and have Medical/Religious exemptions.

All underage volunteers require parental or Guardian consent/ supervision. Must be 16 years or older.

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.
