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.
Reliance Hospice is seeking kind and caring individuals to share their time and talents with our hospice patients and their families.
The comprehensive training you receive will help you to open your heart to understanding the circumstances a hospice patient and their loved ones are facing and give you the practical and emotional tools to feel confident about offering them the assistance you have been trained to provide.
This assistance can include providing companionship, running errands, or providing respite so a family member can take a break. We are also looking for volunteers who can provide patients with any of the services listed below. A volunteer’s presence can help lessen a patient’s loneliness by providing them with companionship. And caregivers find relief when a volunteer comes by to stay with a patient while he or she enjoys some much-needed personal time off.
If you feel your heart responding to this type of service, and you would like to join our team of compassionate volunteers, please feel free to contact us!
