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.
Are you a Veteran? Do you have a few hours each week to spend with a fellow Veteran on hospice?
If so, Grace Hospice is looking for you! At Grace we understand and value the bond that Veterans have with each other. We realize that it is a unique bother/sisterhood that non-veterans are unlikely to fully understand.
Our Vet to Vet program places Veterans with Veteran Hospice patients to provide support, understanding and friendship during end of life care.
Hospice is designed to provide comfort care as well as emotional support and spiritual support in the final phase of a terminal illness. Grace Hospice ensures that our veteran patients will spend their final days of their journey in comfort and with dignity.
Volunteers receive training related to the core principles of hospice and our Veteran to Veteran services all in order to promote the best outcome for patient and volunteer alike.
Please anticipate making at least a year commitment as a Grace Hospice volunteer.
If you would like more information on this unique opportunity, please contact Grace Hospice today!
