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.
Providing light homemaker tasks for patients on hospice care services, at the end of their life's journey. Someone with a terminal diagnosis who can no longer tidy up their home, make their sandwiches or even simply fold their laundry. Maybe even help them eat a meal, and do some dusting, while providing companionship. All kinds of care opportunities... If you are a person that finds joy in bringing joy to those whose last days are numbered, apply! You can choose to serve just one patient, or many. Our hospice patients can be found in any of the four counties we service: Washington, Clackamas, Multnomah or Yamhill. The frequency of visits and the time commitment varies based on availability and patient needs. The opportunity to give back is yours to take.
