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, as well as volunteers who are willing to make weekly or biweekly phone calls. We are also currently training volunteers for our two inpatient units, Hospice Home at High Point and 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.
