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.
THE MEDICAL TEAM Hospice is looking for volunteers who want to dedicate their time to providing compassionate companionship to our patients. As a volunteer you may make visits at a patients’ private home or at a nursing facility where they reside. The role of a volunteer would be to spend quality time with our patients engaging them in conversation and/or activities. 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. Specifically, i am looking for a volunteer with a certified pet to provide pet therapy to a few of our patients. the patients love animals. the interaction they get from pets and being able to reminisce on the time they had pets brings them such joy. i would like to have pet therapy volunteer in the Grand Blanc area. We have multiple patients at Abbey Park and American House. please contact: Courtney Lyon, CTRS, Volunteer Coordinator phone (810)-280-4844. Email: email@example.com
