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.
The Patient Support Volunteer serves as an additional support to patients and families dealing with a terminal illness and end-of-life issues. Volunteers are needed to visit patients in their home or home-like setting and have a chat, share a snack, do a craft, play a game, read, play or sing music or do light housekeeping and cooking. Volunteers are a crucial part of hospice and bring so much joy to our patients and their loved ones. Please leave us your NAME, PHONE NUMBER and EMAIL ADDRESS so we can get in touch with you as soon as possible to discuss the benefits of being a volunteer.
