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.
Our patients live in their own homes all over town, including east Wichita. We are looking for patient visitors to go to patients and provide the gift of time and compassion. At times, volunteers sit and talk with their patients, listen to music together, do art projects, play board games, read, simply share stories and look at family photos. If you would like to make a difference in someone's life, hospice volunteering might be for you! No medical skills or experience are required; our expert clinicians provide all medical care. Orientation to hospice, family dynamics, and grief education is provided before volunteers begin visiting patients.
