Committed to the health and well-being of the people
of Western North Carolina
Serving Macon County since 1973, Angel Home Health was founded as a non-profit hospital based department providing skilled nursing and therapy services. In 1995 we began expanding services to include Hospice Care as a Medicare/Medicaid Provider.
In 2012 we began a new affiliation with Mission Health system still operating as a department of Angel Medical Center. In 2014 CarePartners joined along with the Mission Health Team transitioning all Home Care and Hospice providers under their umbrella of post hospital care. Since 2016 Angel Home Care and Hospice underwent a name change to be CarePartners Home Care and Hospice.
Today our program continues to provide care and services to the residents of Macon County with the support and expanded resources made possible by management and affiliation with CarePartners.
How to Volunteer:
Volunteers serve as a member of the hospice team by sharing skills and interests in a manner that provides comfort and enriches the quality of life for those served. Volunteers serve on a regularly scheduled basis and provide the following:
- Support services – companionship, friendly visiting, active listening, bedside sitting, letter writing.
- Sharing hobbies and special interests — reading, gardening, listening to music, sports, travel, crafts, etc.
- Assisting with errands – grocery shopping, picking up prescriptions and supplies, banking.
- Homemaking tasks – light housekeeping, dishes, laundry, meal preparation,
No task is too big or too small for a hospice volunteer, but often the most important thing you can do is just “be there” for patients to reassure them they are not alone, to hold a hand, to offer a smile, or to just listen. It is not easy work, but the personal rewards are enormous. The strength and courage of patients provide a constant source of inspiration, and volunteers usually feel they gain more than they have been able to give.
Other volunteer opportunities include providing help with special projects, mailings, reception, clerical support or working with special events such as memorial services and fund raising events.

At Care Partners Home Care and Hospice we believe in the importance of raising awareness of end-of-life care and grief and loss in the community. We understand that comfort during life’s final journey does not end for the family with the death of a loved one. We value the opportunity to reach out and touch our community in several different ways, including our annual butterfly release, festival of wreaths, and hospice tree blessing. If you would like to contribute or volunteer for one of these special events, call 828.369.4206.
