Carolinas HealthCare System Union in Monroe provides a high level of professionalism and technology but with the equally important human touch, and that's where you, as a volunteer, can be of great service. You can be a healing, high-touch presence at work in a high-tech environment. You can help alleviate the natural fears and apprehensions of patients and their families by performing courteous and helpful services. You can help reduce isolation and stress of being hospitalized by delivering mail or flowers to a patient, filling a water pitcher, escorting a family member to the appropriate area, running errands or performing clerical duties for the staff.
Remember, no matter how small a service may seem to you, it can be an integral part of the healing process. Learn more about the volunteer opportunities at Carolinas HealthCare System Union.
