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 is looking for musically and/or vocally talented volunteers to work with our terminally ill patients. A lot of our patients spend most of their time in bed and would benefit greatly from you practicing your talents with them.
Singing or playing music for hospice patients can reach them in a special way that no other avenue can. This also has a large impact on their quality of life.
A hospice patient is diagnosed with a terminal illness and it is at this point where helping hands are needed. Direct Patient volunteers serve both patients and families in assisted living facilities, nursing homes, or residential homes. Volunteers are assigned as close to their home, work, or school as possible. Volunteers are given choices of who they visit and where they go. Small instruments are best including a small keyboard.
Volunteers receive initial training and continued support along the way so please know this is something you experience with a team of hospice professionals who are here to help YOU impact a life.
