Volunteering with HPCCR
Help. Support. Volunteer.
Hospice & Palliative Care Charlotte Region would not exist without the support of our volunteers. They are the heart of our organization.
Our specially-trained volunteers bring comfort and peace to patients and families in many ways. They provide companionship to patients in their homes, skilled nursing facilities, and assisted living communities. They help patients cope with life's daily tasks and offer breaks for tired caregivers. They also add much-needed support behind the scenes by helping our staff in the office, at special events, and with fundraising projects.
Volunteers give their time and talents in unique and creative ways. Most importantly, our volunteers offer a great deal of love and care.
If you have a special skill that might benefit our patients and families, we would encourage you to contact us. Special services volunteers are always needed in such areas as notary services, hair styling, massage therapy, gardening, and pet therapy. We are also actively seeking Veterans to serve our patients who were also part of the armed forces.
