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.
Help make a legacy of an amazing person's life by recording their life history. Life Story volunteers interview terminally ill hospice participants and provide a written keepsake of a patient’s life story for family members. Interviews are devised of questions from the BeRemembered.com website and responses are recorded either on paper or directly on BeRemembered.com. The goal of the life story volunteer is to give patients an opportunity to share their story, and provide companionship, purpose, and facilitation of grief through reminiscing before they pass away. The purpose of the life story volunteer is also to give loved ones an opportunity to learn about, reminisce, and grieve their loved one. This is a great way to learn about history from those who lived it. And our participants find that telling their story gives their life meaning and purpose in their final days.
If you have had the recent loss of a loved one we asked that you wait a 12 month bereavement period before volunteering with us.
