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.
Do you enjoy helping those in need? Do you like talking on the phone? Then LifePath Hospice has the volunteer job for you! LifePath Hospice is seeking volunteers to assist with our various calling programs, such as "Tuck-In", "At Home with CHF", and bereavement calling programs.
Volunteers "Tuck" in hospice patients each Wednesday by assessing their need for medication, supplies, equipment to ensure they have what they need through the weekend. Our "At Home with CHF" callers make daily calls to our CHF patients to check in with them, assess and document any changes in condition, and to help educate patients on the program goals to help manage the condition and reduce visits to the emergency room. Bereavement support volunteers offer condolences with compassion and provide information on LifePath’s individual grief counseling, support groups, and children’s grief programming.
Volunteer callers are a vital resource to the hospice team and help us provide additional layer of comfort and support to patients and families
