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.
Mayo Clinic Health System - Hospice Volunteers: Volunteers are a vital part of the hospice team. They bring a personal touch to patients and their families facing a life-limiting illness. We are looking for volunteers to join our team through out the Northwest Wisconsin Region.
*Provide emotional support and companionship to patients and their families
*Provide respite care so caregivers can take a break, run errands or take a nap
*Assist with light household tasks
*Provide support to the bereaved hospice family
*Co-facilitate grief support groups
Vet-to-Vet: Mayo Clinic Health System-Hospice is in need of Veterans who are willing to share some of their precious time to help a family that is providing end of life care for a loved one.
Veteran patients are paired with Veteran Hospice Volunteers who may have a better understanding of what the Veteran has experienced. Hospice volunteers who also are Veterans will have the unique ability to support other Veterans who are terminally ill.
