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.
Seasons Hospice & Palliative Care is looking for dedicated and compassionate Vigil Volunteers to be with patients and families during the dying process. A Vigil Volunteer is a supportive presence, compassionate listener, bringer of rituals, still and quiet. They are an invited guest into a most sacred and personal transition. Volunteers are understanding that this transition is physical and spiritual and that each transition is unique. Vigil Volunteers go to patients when the time of death is near. Their primary concern is the comfort of the patient.
Vigil Volunteers are a highly valued and vital part of our team. Embrace your compassionate self and help enrich the life and death of others. Training is required and ongoing support and education opportunities are provided to help ensure you feel equipped to help our patients in their time of need.
