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.
Compassionate Care is looking for people with a kind and sympathetic heart. Our volunteers make visits to local facilities and private homes to visit our patients. The volunteers offer companionship and emotional support to our patients. Each visit will be unique and centered around the patient. Some will enjoy conversation and other will enjoy reading books, doing crafts, or just the joy of your presence. The time commitment could be as little as 1-3 hours a month with a six month commitment. We will train you and make sure you are comfortable to make these visits. We do run background checks and require a 2-step PPD test which we administer.
