CHH Seeking TLC Volunteers

Are you or someone you know is  ready for a very special volunteer experience and enjoy one-on-one contact with people? If so, we have your spot!

CHH is currently seeking Tender Loving Care (TLC) Program Volunteers.  TLC Volunteers offer our patients the gift of a gentle hand and / or foot massage during their stay.  The massages erase anxiety and pain through a few moments of personal connection.  As a TLC Volunteer, you will participate in training to develop the techniques as well as quality patient communication and listening skills.  Having completed a general Hospital orientation, physical and background check, your commitment is to a weekly shift of 2-3 hours.

“Volunteers make wonderful patient partners because patients respond well to volunteers. They provide a welcome bridge and enhance the appreciation of the Hospital and its community.” said CHH Volunteer Coordinator Shelli Rhoads.

For over 100 years, the Charlotte Hungerford Hospital Volunteer Program has provided essential, supplementary and complementary services to patients, families, visitors and staff. The current Volunteer Program at CHH has 160 traditional volunteers in more than 30 non-clinical and clinical areas that make a profound and positive difference in the Hospital’s daily operations.

If you would like to become part of our Volunteer Team, contact Volunteer Coordinator Shelli Rhoads at 860-496-6470 or  for more information.
