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.
Become a companionship visit volunteer with Ohio Living Home Health & Hospice. Simply spending time with individuals in conversation, playing a game, listening to music, watching TV together, reading to them or even just holding their hand can provide just that caring that all crave. Visits can also provide time that the families can get out for an hour and know their loved one is not alone. They may forget what you said....but they will never forget how you made them feel. ~Carl W. Buechner This is especially true of spending time with hospice clients. We enter this world to fanfare and celebration and sadly many spend much of their time alone as they prepare to leave this world. An hour visit every week or every other week can mean a world of difference in how that person feels. We want everyone to feel loved and valued. If you are interested in providing companionship visits please contact us!
