Newton, NC – Catawba Regional Hospice is seeking caring, compassionate volunteers to serve as valued members of the Hospice team and to offer welcome support for patients and families.

CRH has been invited to serve patients in a 10-county region, including Catawba, Lincoln, Gaston, and Iredell counties. The need for patient support extends throughout the area and offers residents an excellent opportunity to help their neighbors. If you are willing to bring comfort and assistance to families dealing with advanced illness, your participation would be greatly appreciated.

The next volunteer training session will be held at Catawba Regional Hospice’s main campus (3975 Robinson Road, Newton, NC 28658) on Saturday, September 17 (9am-5pm) and will continue on Monday, September 19 (5:30pm-8:30pm). There is no fee for the training.

The session is designed to educate volunteers on communicating effectively with patients and families, to showcase what hospice is, and to clarify the role of hospice volunteers. After completing the class, volunteers will be able to supply administrative support, provide respite for caregivers, offer companionship to patients, and help in other meaningful ways.
To register for the September session or for more information, please contact the Volunteer Services Department at 828.466.0466 or at volunteer@pchcv.org.
