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.
Friendly visitors provide companionship to our hospice patients. Spend time sharing stories, reading to them, listening to music, watching a favorite TV show or just sitting quietly. It’s wonderful to spend time with patients to relieve family members or be there to let them know they’re not alone. We’re looking for volunteers to provide regular visits and companionship to hospice patients in their own community.
We will work to match you with a patient based on your location, availability and background so this role is not only tailored to our patients' needs, but can fit into your schedule as well.
There is required training for this position to ensure that you are prepared and comfortable in the role.
