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.
Our volunteers are trained, and continually educated on the hospice philosophy. With this opportunity, we hope to gain volunteers who are willing to:
-travel to patients' homes
-trim/cut/comb/curl patients' hair or beard
-give manicures/foot massages for patients
*No cutting of nails is permitted*
Often times Hospice can be a discouraging word, but at Encompass Hospice we are about the Quality of Life for our patients. We have several patients who are alert, and willing to accept this kind of help. However, they may be unable to leave the house to get a hair cut.
We encourage you to get with us for more details about this opportunity!
