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.
Seeking caring and compassionate Hospice Volunteers who are Veterans. Volunteers are an important part of the Hospice team. They are needed to provide companionship or caregiver relief.
As a Volunteer, you can help in many ways. A Companionship Volunteer may offer a supportive presence or enjoy reading, taking a walk, and listening to music with the patient. A Caregiver Relief Volunteer typically stays with the patient while the family member/caregiver makes necessary errands and/or simply takes a little time away from the home.
The Medical Team-Hospice provides training to volunteers, recognition and support. We do pay for and require a background check and TB test prior to assignment. Hours are flexible, according to your availability. All we ask is that you have not suffered a major loss of a loved one in the past 12 months.
We would love to meet with you and find out more about how we can work together and how you can make a difference in the lives of those who need it most. If interested, please contact Volunteer Coordinator via email firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 734-779-9790
