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 Abode Hospice, our goal is to enhance the quality of life for patients who are experiencing life-limiting illness. We are seeking volunteers who would like to provide companionship to our patients. As a volunteer with hospice, you will be an integral part of our interdisciplinary team that provides care for the patient and the patient's family. Volunteer activities include playing cards, having a conversation, assisting a patient complete a "life narrative," as well as providing patient caregivers respite. We will provide you training and we will work with your schedule. Volunteers and patients alike find the relationship that results from this connection to be very meaningful. Please join our team today as a volunteer and make a difference in patients' lives.
