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.
Kansas City Hospice and Palliative Care is in need of compassionate people to serve as volunteers in hospice patients' homes, which allows the caregiver to take a break for a few hours. Once screened and trained, volunteers are matched with patients in their same geographical area; the assignments are generally for week days during day time hours.
We are looking for volunteers in the KCK,Bonner Springs, Olathe, Gardner, Independence and eastern Jackson County.
We also are needing licensed hair stylists and massage therapists willing to provide services to hospice patients in their homes.
