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.
Have you been thinking about ways in which you can give back? Are you interested in helping others? Do you enjoy spending time with a variety of people? If you answered yes to any of these, the friendly visitor volunteer opportunity at Heartland Hospice may be a perfect fit for you! Volunteers help to provide companionship and support to hospice patients and their families. Friendly visitors help hospice patients by being a smiling face and provide someone at the end of their life with a friend. Visitors socialize with patient and can join them in fun activities WITHOUT giving on-hands care.
Free training is offered and local travel to hospice facilities and/or patient homes is required. You can set your own schedule and designate what geographic areas you are and are not willing to travel to. If you would like to volunteer, please contact us today - we would love to hear from you!
