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.
Thank you for considering volunteering with Alacare!
If you interested in Creative Arts, Music, Photography, and/or Drama, you can share your talents and interests as a hospice volunteer! Alacare is seeking innovative people to share their love of the arts by bringing the joy to the bedside of terminally ill patients and their families.
Some of the opportunities available are:
Memory projects- photography, hand photos, scrap booking, sewing, quilting,
Art Therapy, crafting, card making
Music- instrumentals both live and/or recorded, vocalist, Threshold Choirs
MELODY-(Musically Engaging Loved Ones to Delight in Yesteryear) prepare recorded music from favorite genres and decades in play lists
Plus many other creative opportunities
New volunteers are mentored by the Volunteer Coordinator until they feel comfortable and confident in providing assistance independently. Volunteers are never expected to assist with the personal care of patients and are assigned based on their interests and what tasks they feel they can easily accomplish.
Our volunteers set their own schedules and we work with you to make the most of your talents and time! If you have a heart for volunteering, please contact Alacare to find out more about this and other volunteer opportunities available.
