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.
Share your talent! Seeking musically inclined people to join our Patient Volunteer Team. You don't have to be a professional musician, just capable and comfortable in playing an instrument or singing for our hospice patients and families.
Music can be a great help in reducing stress and anxiety. It can take our patients down memory lane, make them feel a sense of connection and ease their pain. When they listen to music they love, a certain melody may resonate deep within their soul and provide a space that brings comfort, calmness, reassurance and joy. Performing for, or maybe even singing with our patients, is a very special way to offer a heartfelt moment of connection and enjoyment.
We offer great training and ongoing support to ensure that you will feel comfortable in your work as a valued member of our Hospice Team!
