Volunteers are the heart of our hospice. Share your gift of time with our friendly office staff. Volunteers help answer the office phones and route calls to the appropriate team member. Volunteers also assist in preparing mailings or other clerical tasks. Our volunteer training provides information about the many aspects of the dying process and the various ways to assist the dying through their end of life journey. Many of our graduates find the training itself a transforming experience. There is no obligation to volunteer upon completion of the training.
Hospice's mission is to focus its care on the whole family. Emphasis is placed on pain and symptom control and improving quality of life for the person who is dying. Hospice assists the patient, family and caregivers in coping by providing psychological and spiritual support as well as physical care management. Our mission is to provide those entrusted to us, quality and compassionate care as we walk their final journey together.
Since 1980, Carilion Hospice has provided competent and compassionate care for terminally ill patients in the Roanoke and New River Valleys. The area's most experienced team of professionals and volunteers offer symptom management, emotional and spiritual support, and bereavement care.
