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.
Abbey Hospice is looking for caring individuals who are willing to visit with patients in various settings, including nursing homes, assisted living facilites, and in patients' homes.
Care giving is a 24 hour a day, 7 day a week challenge. Our mission is to support caregivers during this time by offering company, conversation, and comfort. Often volunteers can provide a few hours for care givers to leave the house, run some errands, and do some much needed personal care. As a hospice volunteer you will make a difference in people's lives, while heightening you own sense of values and helping you focus on those things that matter most in life.
There is no set amount of time to volunteer. It's on your schedule, whenever you're available. Please consider donating as little as an hour a week to help someone in their time of need.
