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.
Great Lakes Caring Hospice is looking for spiritual volunteers who are willing to sit bedside with a dying patient. Our "By Your Side" program is in need of those with compassion in their hearts and souls. Those who have a calling to companion with a patient who within their last days on this earth.
If you have always wanted to minister spiritually to another human being, always wanted to bring comfort to a grieving family as their loved one is dying, willing to sit in gracious silence while awaiting a soul to cross over, then this is for you.
Our vigil volunteers are provided training. The schedule is very flexible and on an on-call basis. You would give a minimum of 2 hours or more to sitting with a patient primarily in a nursing home environment. Most of the hours needed are evenings and weekends.
**We are non-denominational and do not minister religious beliefs to patients and families** DRUG TEST REQUIRED
