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.
Caring for the terminally ill can be very exhausting for loved ones. The role of a caregiver is to provide patient care 24 hours a day, 7 days a week leaving little time or no time to do anything outside the home. Hospice volunteers can provide a much needed break by sitting with the patient to provide safety while the caregiver runs errands such as grocery shopping, banking, doctor’s appointments, or buying groceries. It only takes a caring heart, a listening presence and a willingness to help. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, please contact Barbara Jackson, Manager of Volunteer Services at 334-260-0015 or Barbara.firstname.lastname@example.org
