Volunteers & Careers


Volunteers: The Lifeblood of Hospice Services

Volunteers are an important and integral part of Richmond County Hospice, Inc. We invite you to enjoy the personal satisfaction and rewards of helping others. Hold the hand of a patient, provide emotional support to a family member, or provide a break for a caregiver. You may help with reading, letter writing, or just become a companion. As a Hospice volunteer, you are an essential part of our organization, helping us to serve our patients with peace, comfort, and dignity.

For additional information, please contact Lisa O'Neal, Volunteer and Outreach Coordinator for Richmond County Hospice, Inc. at  910-997-4464.
