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.
Provide telephone support to caregivers who have lost a loved one in our hospice program. Callers will contact people in the first month after the death of a patient. These caregivers have been identified as being "low risk" for complicated grief.
Ideal candidates have:
A clear, pleasant phone voice
Personal or professional experience with grief
Computer skills for data entry and locating caregiver information
Training will be provided.
