Patient/family volunteers play an important role in the hospice team in a variety of capacities. These volunteers visit with patients and families in their home setting providing companionship, respite and listening ear or a helping hand. Activities may include supportive phone calls and visits, providing respite for the caregiver, running errands, providing transportation, delivering meals or doing simple chores.
Our greatest need is for volunteers who will visit with patients and their families in their homes, assisted living facilities or nursing facilities. Due to ongoing restrictions, we are not currently training volunteers for our inpatient units, Hospice Home at High Point or the Randolph Hospice House.
As we gradually re-open our volunteer services, we do so with an abundance of caution and with protocols in place to protect our volunteers and those they serve.
