A Message From the Coordinator
We celebrate our Volunteers. I am the hospice volunteer coordinator at Craven County Hospice and would like to honor all volunteers who are dedicated to providing care and support for the patients who are nearing the end of life’s journey.
Across the country, more than 458,000 trained volunteers provide more than 21 million hours of service to Hospice organizations. More than 1.58 million people receive compassionate care from hospice every year, and hospice volunteers are an integral part of the care team.
Craven County Hospice staff and employees would like to publicly thank our volunteers! These kind people help every day by spending time with the patients, providing pet, music, and other alternative therapies, assisting in the office and much more. The work these volunteers do for the patients we serve is invaluable. Their dedication and selfless commitment enables us to fulfill our mission: to enhance the quality of life for individuals and their loved ones touched by a terminal illness. Their acts of compassion both large and small allow our patients comfort and companionship that make the difference at a very critical point in their lives.
To Craven County Hospice volunteers and all volunteers, thank you!
Joan Whitley, Volunteer Services Coordinator
