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 and Palliative Care is in need of compassionate volunteers to provide friendly visits to our patients in Anne Arundel County. No medical or personal care required. Flexible schedule, based on your availability and close to your home - helping neighbors in your own community. Companionship visits are simple, caring interactions, but mean the world to our patients. Extensive training and support is provided by Seasons Hospice. Volunteer opportunities are available in patients' homes and nursing facilities.
YOU can be that difference by...
Providing companionship (from simple conversations to exploring deep feelings)
Reading aloud or listening to music together
Looking at photos together and sharing memories (life review)
Sitting with a patient so caregivers have free time (respite)
Journaling (helping the patient record their history)
Watching movies or playing games
Helping with children
Sharing a quiet moment
Simply being present
