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.
Patient companions allow caregivers a much needed break from their daily routine of caring for their terminally ill loved one. Whether they need to leave the house for a few hours to run errands or go into another room and get chores done. Patient companion volunteers will sit with the patient and provide socialization, read, or sing. In addition to regular daytime hours, families can use support during evenings and weekends. We are looking for Patient Companions for the City of Trussville, AL and surrounding areas. Background checks and training are required.
