Volunteers are an important part of our hospice team. While Gaston Hospice
offers a total system of care provided by physicians, nurses, certified
nursing assistants, social workers, counselors, chaplains and other professionals,
we recognize that belonging to an extended, caring community is vital
to the well-being of our patients and their families. This takes individuals
with many talents and time to share of themselves coming together as volunteers.
There are several opportunities for volunteering with Gaston Hospice.
Our volunteers share their gift of music; others flower arranging, hair
styling, pet therapy, office work and always the gift of time. Volunteers
provide their time to sit with patients while family members take a couple
of hours of much needed respite care.
