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.
A massage therapist volunteer’s gift of time and skill completes the circle of care that is offered through hospice.
Hospice is designed to provide comfort care as well as spiritual and emotional support in the final phase of a terminal illness. At Grace Hospice, we focus on enhancing the quality of life and our massage therapist volunteers play a key role in our mission. Grace Hospice ensures that our patients will spend their final days of their journey in comfort and with dignity.
Massage therapy has been proven to be an effective therapeutic tool for pain relief and symptom management. As a complimentary therapy, massage must be appropriately administered by a certified massage therapist.
If you are caring, compassionate, have a true desire to help others and are a certified massage therapist, becoming a Grace Hospice volunteer may be the perfect opportunity for you!
