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.
VITAS Healthcare is looking for musical volunteers who are able to play musical instruments and/or sing for hospice patients living at home or in long term care facilities located in North County and Florissant areas. Sometimes what a hospice patient needs most is a way to express feelings without talking. By playing or singing their favorite songs or hymns, VITAS music volunteers help patients and families reconnect with feelings and memories that can bring about a sense of peace and happiness.
VITAS provides training on how to work with people at the end of life. The volunteer provides the talent, compassion and time. Assignments are made according to the volunteer’s time and location. If you are interested in learning more, please contact Emily Jokerst at (314) 682-3400 or at Emily.Jokerst@Vitas.com. For more information on VITAS, visit www.VITAS.com.
