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.
Patient Support Volunteers visit with Hospice patients and their families in the home or in a facility. Volunteers provide smiles and encouragement through companionship, socialization, listening to wonderful life stories, reading to patients, and offering caregivers the opportunity to take a break knowing that their loved ones will not be alone. If you have a desire to help, we have a place for you. We can't wait to meet you!
