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.
Seasons Hospice & Palliative Care is looking for a volunteer who can make weekly courtesy calls to our patients, either on a Wednesday or a Thursday. Calls can be made from our office, or after training, from your home.
These calls are made to our patients, who reside in their home or private residence and are instrumental in helping the Seasons Team provide excellent care to our patients. These friendly calls help us ensure that patients are stocked with enough supplies and medication for the upcoming weekend.
These calls are also vital in providing additional support to the patient's caregivers. A friendly voice and listening ear can make a tremendous difference in the lives of those who are providing 24 hour care to a loved one on hospice.
On a typical week, these calls take between 1 and 2 hours to complete.
