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.
Hospice volunteers make a huge difference in someone’s life by simply being present. They provide support and companionship to patients and families in their homes and long term care facilities. As a volunteer, you can provide caregivers a short break and spend time with a patient playing cards, visiting, reading aloud or sharing your well-behaved 4 legged friend. Veteran volunteers also needed to visit patients who have also served. No nursing skills needed or personal care duties performed by volunteers. Hospice volunteering can be a meaningful and life-changing opportunity for anyone, even teens! We can do one on one training with you or gather a few people together from Plattsburg to be educated on hospice and the volunteer role. To learn more, schedule a time to meet or to arrange training, call Kathy Fetters , Volunteer Manager 816-389-5426 or firstname.lastname@example.org
