The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
We need your compassion and generosity! Our volunteers are assigned one of our hospice patients to visit a couple of hours 2 to 4 times a month. Some patients need someone to talk to, share memories with, spend a pleasant hour with. Some patients need someone to sit with them while their caregiver takes a couple of hours away. We will place you with a patient near your home and that you are comfortable with. We will provide a comprehensive orientation and "hold your hand" every step of the way. Come be a part of our family and we can help so many people together. Please call Sabra at Silverado Hospice (281) 397-8800 and include your phone number so we can contact you.
