Volunteers are at the heart of hospice care, offering their time and talents to support the services provided by our professional care team. The thousands of hours contributed annually to Hospice & Palliative Care of Iredell County are critical to helping us fulfill our mission of providing the best possible end-of-life experience for our patients and their loved ones.
One of the most valuable roles our volunteers fill is spending time with families. By offering companionship and compassion to patients, they also provide respite for caregivers, giving them time to run errands, attend events or spend time with family and friends.
For those who may not be comfortable working directly with families, we also have need for volunteers to assist with clerical duties, fundraising and other special projects at both HPCIC offices as well as at the Gordon Hospice House and S. Mitchell Mack Hospice House.
Volunteering with Hospice & Palliative Care of Iredell County is a truly rewarding experience. Our volunteers not only enjoy knowing that the hours they contribute make a lasting difference in the lives of their neighbors but also benefit from the opportunity to meet new people and learn new skills.
HPCIC always welcomes anyone to join our volunteer program that is willing to comply with our policies and procedures as well as the requirements imposed by the North Carolina Licensure.
