Carolinas HealthCare System Lincoln volunteers are of great service to the hospital in providing that additional compassionate and healing presence at work in a high-tech environment. Volunteers assist in easing the natural fears and apprehension of a patient or family member by performing courteous and beneficial services. They help reduce the isolation and stress associated with hospitalization by delivering mail or flowers to the patient, filling a water pitcher, escorting a family member to the appropriate area, communicating to family members and friends while they are waiting for surgery and recovery of their loved ones, or simply working in the gift shop.
The following opportunities are available to dedicated and capable adults and juniors:
