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.
Are you looking for a rewarding way to make a difference? Only veterans can relate to other veterans in a way society will never truly understand. Aurora at Home is seeking veteran volunteers. Duties include:
Visiting hospice patients in their own homes, in and around the area.
Reading, holding a hand, chatting/reminisce, playing games or just watching TV with the patient, anything a good neighbor might do!! Volunteers do not transport or do personal cares.
Volunteers are needed weekly depending on patient need for a couple of hours each visit. The commitment is not time consuming; services are not always needed every week.
Training is provided. No nursing experience needed.
We hope you will join us on this rewarding path. Please contact Miranda Gage at 920-412-6359 or email Miranda.Gage@Aurora.org for more information.
