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.
Our team is seeking licensed Massage Therapists interested in enhancing the quality of life for people with a terminal diagnosis. Massage therapy is a potent form of palliative care; not only for the body, but for the heart as well. Other than alleviating the patients pain, your gift of your time and energy can also go a long way to help limit their needs of pharmaceutical intervention. Massage also helps hold the space for meaningful companionship.
Massage Therapy volunteers serve both patients and families in assisted living facilities, nursing homes, or residential homes. Volunteers are assigned as close to their home, work, or school as possible. Training is required to help ensure you feel equipped to help our patients.
