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.
We are looking for volunteers who want to dedicate their time to provide compassionate companionship to our patients.As a volunteer you would spend quality time with our patients engaging them in conversation and activities.As a volunteer you may make visits at a patients’ private home or at a nursing facility where they reside. A volunteer and patient may do activities together such as, play cards, read books, watch TV/movies, listen to music, go for walks, shopping, paint nails, beauty care, games, arts/crafts and other numerous leisure activities. Our patients enjoy music therapy, art, and pet therapy if available. Also,there are opportunities to help with the facilities' activities/events.
