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.
YOU can make a difference for our patients that are nursing home residents in Sussex County. Seasons Hospice and Palliative Care is seeking volunteers who want to help those with life limiting illness by providing comfort, support, care and compassion. Being a hospice volunteer is simple, yet profoundly rewarding. There is no medical or personal care involved - just caring from the heart! Visits are based on your schedule and are always close to your home. You receive extensive support and training from Seasons Hospice and Palliative Care and join a network of caring and committed volunteers. YOU can be that difference by...
Providing companionship (from simple conversations to exploring deep feelings)
Reading aloud or listening to music together
Looking at photos together and sharing memories (life review)
Journaling (helping the patient record their history)
Watching movies or playing games
Sharing a quiet moment
Simply being present
