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.
This is a volunteer opportunity where you can really make a difference in a patient's life. Hospice Patient Care Volunteers are an important part of the Yolo Hospice team. Volunteers are trained to give patients in their final months companionship, to read, play music for them, take part in life review, provide caregiver relief and do light housework. Patient care Volunteering takes place in Yolo, Solano, Sacramento, Sutter and Colusa counties in facilities and homes. We offer online and in-person training. To sign up for training, go to www.sachospice.org or see the Volunteer Coordinator for online training. Please contact the Volunteer Coordinator, Carlye Wilder for any questions 530-758-5566.
