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.
Brookdale Hospice provides friendship, compassion and company to our Senior Population living in Senior Living Communities.
Visiting with one of our residents provides much needed love, company and smiles to those who often lonely. Our resident simply want someone to talk to, someone to take them outside to the courtyard when weather permits, play a game with them, help them eat and simply: hold their hand. They tell me everyday how much they love their visits from their volunteers.
We look for an hour a week but you visit when it is convenient for you. The schedule is completely flexible. You do not have to visit on a certain day or time; you go when it's best for you. This helps those who want to visit in the evening or on a weekend!
Please consider this fantastic volunteer opportunity. This is your chance to provide some love and smiles to someone in need.
