Become a Volunteer

Duke HomeCare & Hospice

As the situation with COVID-19 (coronavirus) continues to rapidly evolve, Duke University Health System is working diligently to monitor developments and implement guidelines to prevent the spread of infection. Our top priority is to keep patients, visitors, team members, and the community at large safe. At this time, all hospital volunteer programs are suspended until further notice. We will keep you updated about the status of our volunteer program, and we look forward to welcoming you back to our hospitals in this important capacity as soon as possible.

Volunteers 18 and older share their time, skills, and experience to care for our patients and their loved ones.


To become a volunteer, you must complete an application (PDF, 270 KB) and 18 hours of training. There are additional requirements, like having an up-to-date immunization record. HomeCare & Hospice staff will guide you through the process and you can learn more by calling 919-620-3853. Our staff can discuss which volunteer opportunities would be the best match for you.
