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.
Hospice is a way for individuals with advanced illnesses to live with comfort, dignity, hope and support. Hospice provides services to both patients and their families.
Why should I become a Hospice volunteer?
Volunteering for Renown Hospice offers unique opportunities for personal fulfillment and growth. You can make a significant difference in another’s life by contributing time, energy, compassion, and ideas. You can also gain experience and insight into how people can cope well with the challenges of serious illness and the death of a loved one.
How can I help?
Volunteers are an integral part of the hospice team. Specialized training in the hospice philosophy and services prepares our volunteers to understand the needs of patients and families and the best ways to sensitively communicate and give support.
