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.
Our hospice volunteers make a difference for people at the end of their life journey by filling the gap between loved ones and professional caregivers.
You will be trained to meet the needs of patients and their families. You may visit on a schedule, yet also be open to change as dictated by the patient’s health and interests. You will provide support to terminally ill individuals and their caregivers based on their needs, like running errands, listening or reading to them, respite care, and/or grief support.
Depending on your interests, you may work in our office too, helping with administrative work, like data entry, mailing and photocopying, answering phone calls that come into the hospice and assisting our caring staff in coordinating support activities.
It can be an intense and fulfilling experience!
