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.
At Heartland Hospice, we depend on our hospice volunteers to help us provide the love, respect, and care our patients and their families need. As a volunteer, you would help us decide which tasks you are comfortable performing. Our volunteers help enrich the lives of our patients by:
Reading or providing a comforting touch
Providing a friendly visit to lift a patient's spirit
Staying with patients so family members can get a much needed rest.
